    Turn your screen brightness down. Turn of wifi/bluetooth/etc when not being used. Keep an eye on wakelocks.
    That'll get you farther than any app will.

    What about a battery indicator showing the numbers? Stock just shows the bar.

    Juice Defender really does help. I've tested it many times on and off. Gives you a good 20% more on average.

    I just use the basic default settings.

    Does the battery level show numbers instead of the bar on the top right? How do I change it?

    I don't like any of them. I do the same things these apps do, but manually with control over every aspect. I also find that disabling one feature doesn't always mean you get the battery benefit intended if something works with that service and hits a wall, and maybe repeating processes to try to work. I like to leave most things running as the Android designers have intended and have had great results. I think alot of old school users are just used to earlier iterations of Android and by default do not trust most of what they assume are battery hog processes. It's probably the case in many instances that it helps that I came late to the android world and have only experienced ice cream sandwich and newer.

    What I have found to be the best battery app is actually an app called Fast Reboot. It basically clears all apps from memory and restarts them. This can be a benefit if you have an app that runs amok and cycles on some error eating your battery up. I find this very common with poorly written games and such since my kids take over my phone all the time. lol

    Don't use battery savers, WiFi always on but I have most apps set to only sync or refresh at intervals above 4 hours. I get about 16 hours out of the phone with moderate use.

    Juice defender turns things off that I need to be working even on the default settings but 16 hours is plenty in this day and age.

    I find Juice Defender Plus can be configured to do just about anything if one takes the time to set it up properly. My last phone, would last about 7 hours before JD, after it would go from early morning to almost midnight. Dramatic difference.

    The built in stock task manager works just fine for me. Constantly killing all apps only to have to restart them will use more battery. The only problem is when I have a misbehaving app. For that use an app called Watchdog. Fortunately I got the pro version for free from Amazon. It does a good job of alerting me when an app is misbehaving and then I just manually kill that single app. I keep sync, wifi, and gps turned on all the time and they never show up as battery drainage culprits. The biggest battery users are gonna be screen on time and the radio when the signal is weak.
