This is kind of a given, but I really didn't realize just how true it was until I got myself a case.
Get a case with a magnet in it (sleeper magnet is usually what it is referred to on the cases) this will make the screen turn off the moment it touches the magnet (without any harm to the BB), I went for a while without a case, and everytime my purse would adjust and something press up against a key the screen would turn on for a while. Even though I had it on a low setting, enough of these presses really made the battery go up quicker.
Now that I have a case with a magnet on it, the battery performance is amazing. I have not charged this thing in 4 days, and it still has over 40 percent battery :D
