I know I managed to make my battery life worse by overclocking... Although I also found out that I could undervolt a lot (about half of the original voltage) in the lower frequencies. I will need to test for longer to see how well it works.

I use an app called Anfo Core that can change the number of cores running on the device. I run my tablet as a Dual or single core most of the time and I have noticed a slight improvement. I'm also using Lagfix and Seeder that make the slower speeds a little smoother.

I doubt that you can half the voltage. You probably undervolt with SetCPU with the result that only one core is undervolted and misbehaves and the other cores make up for it.

Ever since I installed Greenpower free my battery life has improved a lot.

It manages the wifi, 3gandbluetooth sleep settings and sync settings.

I set it to turn on wifi every 1 or 2 hours for 2 minutes to sync etc, and after that it turns everything back off. I dont have to remember to turn wifi off when i leave it.
That together with Tasker turning off wifi on certain apps/games really helps preserve battery.

My system is NOT rooted, but I have noticed significant change in my battery life so far with following:

1. Balanced Mode to Power Save mode.

This gets me like extra 2 hours or so. WIthout this change, 5-6 hours for my usage and with this it goes up to 7-8 hours screen time.

2. Under Wi-Fi Setting change Use wifi during sleep mode (mine is in Japanese so exact wording may be different) to never. Default setting was always. Prior to this change, I lost quite bit overnight unplugged; however, after the change it loses negligible amount.

Now rather than these, I am trying to play around with Juice Defender, which was recommended by d14b0ll0s in best application list he created. I have initially downloaded Juice Defender Free edition, and noticed may be minimal gain over #1 already instituted. But concept was great. So I ended up purchasing Ultimate edition, which allows us to control when to turn of WIFI per individual application based without Root i.e. while reading PDF I don't think I need WIFI connection.



I am still tweaking and playing with Juice Defender, but I am certain without change in #1,#2 (which are actually taken care by Juice Defender in its own way), I can gain same battery life and my hope/guess is I can get even more battery life.

So in conclusion, for those not rooted try Juice Defender (at least free version). I will let you all know how the ultimate version does in next couple days.
never use super ips+ the screen is bright enough

True, IPS+ only needed when you are outside under a bright sun light.

I have seen a massive increase in my battery and over all performance since rooting a few days ago. Using various tweeks including the "deep sleep" build.prop tweek.
