What are best parameters to save battery power on BB 9500?

What works for me is to go to Applications>Options>Screen/Keyboard and reduce the Background Brightness down to 10% which, believe it or not, is ample brightness. This seems to extend my battery life by quite a few days

A lot of things can, and will, impact battery life.
This has been discussed numerous times, try the search function.
I don't think we need an additional thread.

Despite the buzz kill comment asked the question two cents:

I manage my bluetooth....I assigned the lower right hand side convenince key to manage my connections. When I get out of the car I turn off my blue tooth. By doing so I can recharge my phone every other day instead of every day.
