How to save battery power

I recently purchased a cute little NetBook (Asus), and the long battery life really opens up new options I didn't have when using my Laptop.

In fact, the long battery time (more than 9 hours!) really make me want some more of it, when I travel, fly etc. and completely by accident I ran across this nice article by JKOnTheRun about how to stretch the laptop battery runtime, that included a nice list of tips.

The tips are very simple and many of them are relevant for smartphones and PDA as well:

- Dim the screen and keyboard
- Kill the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
- Put movies on a USB flash drive
- Turn off extraneous hardware
- Shut down Background / unneeded programs
(Full article can be found at JKOnTheRun of course)
