Default Battery saving tips?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, my Bold seems to be running out of juice pretty quickly and I don't know if there's something wrong with it or if it's just the way that I'm using the phone. I have many of the basic apps but I usually close them after I'm done using them. I'm usually just sending e-mails and texts but the battery dies a little bit faster than normal. Are there any tips on saving battery life or should I just look into getting an extended battery? Thanks for the help.

That's the link I was looking for but just couldn't find it, you beat me too it lol..Thanks for that Jsanders

I find when I set the screen to turn off sooner like 5 or 10 secs vs 20 or 30 seconds I get a little better battery life, just a tip but I'm sure a tip thats in that link you posted.
