re: 5 Tips: Stretch Smartphone, Tablet Battery Life
I agree, WiFi is a huge power drain - then again, it's typically faster than 4G or others, so if you're running low and really need to quickly look something up on the web it might still be worth it. But in addition to wireless radio, watching videos is a huge battery no-no too.

Turn off Wi Fi - that's the biggest power draw in most cases.
