    I have SC 2.9.2 with the EC10 comavolt and a gingerbread theme. My battery life still isn't great. Its better than it was with 2.9 but won't get me through work and then through the evening. Is there anything else I can do, or is this the price I have to pay for speed and power?

    1. Dim the screen.

    2. Limit background data and auto sync

    3. Use darker backgrounds

    4. Don’t use live wallpapers

    5. Put the phone in airplane mode if you know you are not going to have signal

    6. Turn off Wifi if you aren’t using it.

    7. Disconnect from unused Bluetooth devices. If you aren’t using those head phones, disconnect from them.

    8. Turn off Bluetooth*

    9. Turn off GPS*

    10. Use darker or black key boards

    11. Dont use app killers.
