    You charge overnight and in 4-5 hours you only get 30% battery drain down to 70%? I think that's pretty standard. I just got a 3500mAh battery which I highly recommend all Evo owners to get. No regrets even if it makes it slightly bulkier.

    dont use a task killer. If you do a search, you will also find hundreds of threads on how task killers actually make your battery worse.

    Turn all auto killing off on the task killer only use it to kill apps that are acting weird (or at least thats what I do), download the screen brightness widget from curvefish along with the power control ones (if you don't use Sense), also you can turn 3g off if you want, you can do this by holding the power button down and turning off network internet or what ever it is called.
