Usually just turning off wifi/bluetooth on laptops(and smartphones) will almost double your battery's charge. Other than that I don't both with any of the smaller things.

Well, if you are traveling or can do without it then it is a good option. You wouldn't do it 100% of the time, but it comes in handy.

Also don't keep your laptop plugged in all the time. Let the battery run down sometimes.

Lithium Ion batteries take about 2x the juice to charge from 50% - %100 than they do from 0% to 50%.

The lifetime of your battery is basically directly related to the amount of power you channel through it, over its lifetime -- thus, charging your battery to only 60-80%, from an initial 0-15%, will extend your battery life considerably.

(a) Don't recharge until you've gotten low.
(b) Don't bother charging past 80% unless you *really* need the extra charge the next time you'll use the device. That last 20% will cost you nearly the amount of battery life that the first 80% cost you.
