    Id love to squeeze as much as I can from my battery when using wifi because right now I can get like 2 hours max on it with wifi. I was wondering if anyone tried testing how much more battery life u will get when the brightness is half up instead of full. Will it add a good deal to the battery life?

    I am not jailbroken even. So nothing's screwed with my stuff. How much do you get with wifi? I get about 2 hours maybe 2 and a half.

    I can get 5-6 hours of wifi if I'm just web surfing, less using Youtube.
    I have my brightness turned way down and I find it helps with battery life.

    ) and look up random stuff, no porn, no youtube (usually).

    And to the person who said they get 5-6 hours with wifi, have you tried doing so with full brightness and see the difference?

    Damn then I guess it's brightness that really schools the battery here. I do see a very big difference between half up and full especially. At one point it just turns so bright it glows all of a sudden lol. Perhaps that's what was owning my battery

    I'll give it a go today, see how it holds out throughout the day with regular use of wifi and half brightness.
