If your wondering if there is anyway in saving as much battery life as possible when using your device, then we have a few ideas that may help you.

There are ways to conserve iPhone battery life, but many of them involve turning off services and features, which makes it a choice between all the cool things that the iPhone can do and having enough juice to do them.

1: Turn Auto-Brightness on and you'll save battery because your screen will need to use less power in bright places.

Go to Settings app> Brightness>Auto-Brightness On

2: Turn Bluetooth off when not in use. Transmitting data wirelessly takes battery and leaving Bluetooth on to accept incoming data at all times requires even more battery. My advice, Turn off Bluetooth except when you're using it as it will morebattery.

Go to Settings>General>Bluetooth>Move Slider to Off

3: Wifi is another one you can turn off when not in use. Keeping Wi-Fi turned on at all times in hopes that an openhotspot will appear is a sure way to drain your battery life. So, unless you're using all the time, keep Wi-Fi turned off.

Go to Settings>WiFi>Slide to Off

4: Location services is another killer!! This allows your phone to know where you are and give you exact driving directions, give that information to apps that help you find restaurants, and more. But, like any service that sends data over a network, it needs battery power to work. If you're not using Location Services, turn them off and save some power!!

Go to Settings> General>Location Services>Slide to Off

5: Check your email accounts less often. Try checking every hour or, if you're really serious about saving battery, manually!! Manual checks means you'll never have email waiting for you on your phone, but you'll also stave off the red battery icon.

Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendar > Fetch New Data > Select Your Preference

6: This is probably not want you want to hear, but do less battery intensive things!  Things that require the phone be on for long periods of time, or use a lot of system resources, suck the most battery. These things include movies, games and browsing the web. If you need to conserve battery, limit your use of battery-intensive apps.

7: Little things like, Constantly putting your phone to sleep and waking it up will drain battery life. Of course these functions are common parts of using the phone, but you can also be judicious in your turning on and off of the phone and save battery life at the same time.

8: Auto-Lock your device sooner, You can set your iPhone to automatically go to sleep, a feature known as Auto-Lock, after a certain amount of time. The sooner the device  sleeps, the less power is used to run the screen or other services. My advice >> Try setting Auto-Lock to 1 or 2 minutes.

Go to Settings>General> Auto-Lock>Tap your Preference

9: Turning your 3G off can help aswell!!! The iPhone 3G and later models can take advantage the speedy3G cellularphone network. Using 3G requires more battery life to get the quicker data speeds and higher-quality calls. Using slower EDGE network. Your battery will last longer (though you'll need it when you're downloading websites more slowly!).

Go to Settings > General > Network > Slide Enable 3g to Off or Cellular data on the 4S

10: Finally,try turning off the Vibration. If you receive a lot of phone calls, messages or alerts, your phone's vibrator is working overtime. If you don't absolutely need it, you can save precious battery life by turning it off. Open up the Settings app, and select Sounds.

I hope that these few tips help you, and are straight forward to execute.

I personally use a few of the above tips, but for some people the battery issues doesn't worry them.Either way, why not try them out and see for yourself?? or get your friends to try them out?
