Sprint HTC EVO battery life

While at conference last week I was pleasantly surprised that my beloved android phone kept a battery charge from morning until late in the evening. I was getting nearly 16 hours of battery use without a recharge. I'm not sure if this was due to New Orleans, Louisiana having vastly superior cell coverage than my native greater-Chicagoland-area of Illinois.


I do have a task killer installed on my phone, but as an experiment for the past month or so I have disabled the auto-kill functionality. And I really haven't noticed any marked difference in battery performance.

I generally keep the 4G antenna disabled (and 4G isn't available at all in NOLA).

I disable Wi-Fi unless I am going to be sitting in range of a trusted access point.

What tips and tricks have you found to extend your battery life with Sprint's HTC EVO? Feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments below, and I will follow-up highlighting the best and the brightest, along with my own findings, in a future post.
