Google InfoWorld's Serdar Yegulalp provides a look at the best apps for boosting the battery life of your Android device. "The best place to start if you just want to survey your power usage habits is Battery Indicator. To follow that up with actual power management, Green Power and JuiceDefender are your best bets. 2x Battery is not a bad program, but it's limited to managing cell data and not Wi-Fi connections. If that feature were added in a future revision, 2x Battery would be a real contender."

I've found SetCPU to be the best battery saver [...] At 30% battery, my phone becomes slow. At 15%, it becomes *very slow*. Because slow is always better than dead, and the net effect is significantly longer battery life.

Probably mostly because it acts as a signal / limiter for you, to use it much less (while, per task, possibly actually using more power)

When people become (almost) obsessed about some goal desired by them, about tricks supposedly leading to it - they often overlook how much, during search for the holy grail, they modify their own behaviour (and, subsequently, lead themselves to feedback loop, reinforce their self-perception that tricks work)
