I use Advanced Task Manager on my Android phone and I have it set to kill apps when the screen is dark. That and resetting screen brightness really helps with battery life.
Worst advice ever. Whatever you do, DO NOT install a task manger, it actually won't help any. This has been overstated many many times by many articles online.

Turn off AutoSync in Accounts/Settings
This right here is the best advice. If you don't need autosync, turn it off and it will save a great deal of battery.
My Nexus 7 tablet lasts me 2-3 day of moderate usage (2-3 hours/day usually). My Galaxy Nexus is equally impressive on battery as well - I get 12-14 hours based on my current usage (~1.5 hr. screen time, 100-150 texts/day, phone calls vary from 5 mins/day - 2 hrs/day)
