I leave google now on, but it depends on whether you would use it or not. I like having the various cards and reminders, etc. so I leave it on. You are right though, enabling/disabling individual cards won't do anything different to battery. Even with Google Now on though, I haven't found myself looking at my battery during the day.
What you can do though, is go into Latitude (Maps>Latitude>Locations Settings) and disable the share location history and "update from this device" options. Google Now will still detect your location, but if you're okay with not looking at where you were the last few days (Location History) I've found it saves a little bit of juice. I don't need to know I went to work and a happy hour yesterday.
I remember the humpback batteries - had one on my TBolt for about a week, but couldn't stand it. Humpbacks are for whales and bell-ringers.
