    Check out this thread.

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/rescue-squad-guides/47871-overclocking-101-a.html

    Its pretty long, but WELL worth the read. the First post is mainly background info so you understand what you are doing by Overclocking. The second explains how to use SetCPU to its full potential to increase Battery life AND Performance. Also, if you are uncomfortable flashing new kernals/ROMs, do a search on how to threads for those, its really pretty easy.

    "App Killer" free app from marketplace

    One very low tech way to increase your battery life is to install "App Killer" from the app store. When I bought my phone, the salesperson let me know that evidently droids tend to spontaneously run a lot of apps simultaneously in the background thereby using up the battery.

    Tap the app killer a few times a day to close any unwanted apps / programs that are running.
