    What do you do to minimize battery consumption?

    I have learned turning off Bluetooth when not in use.

    I don't know if it helps, but I often close apps I am no longer using.

    Lower brightness of screen.

    What do you do?

    Not much really.

    For daily use:
    -Brightness at 50%
    -Bluetooth only turned on when I am in my car for Ford Sync
    -Wifi always on (though Ask to Join Networks off)
    -Notifications (limited to only about 10 apps)

    With moderate usage I usually have around 60% left by the time I get home from work.

    If I forgot to bring my charger with my when I stay somewhere overnight, I set brightness down to like 20%, wifi off, bluetooth off. It lasts a long time if I turn down the brightness.

    Here's some more:
    Turn off 3G
    Turn on AirPlane mode
    Push off, Fetch manual (mail)
    Do monthly battery calibration
    That's it! :)
