How can I save battery on my N95?

Is there a power saver app for the N95?

I believe somewhere in settings the Nokia N95 has a power save mode. It'll cut back screen brightness, diwconnect unnecessary web connections etc...
Biggest waster is unnecessary 3G connection. For email and Opera Mini 2G is absolutely sufficient. Only enable 3G when you intend to do download files over 100 KB or when you want to stream video. For emails and browsing with OM and voice calls etc, you do not need 3G. Disabling it will increase battery life by 30-40%
Also, get Best Taskman from Ovi - convenient app switcher that lets you kill unneeded apps.
And when you press and hold the red ccall end button, you can kill background web-connections.
Keep the phone memory as clean as possible - save files and music to mass storage. Install 3rd party apps to mass storage unless they specifically state they have to be installed in phone memory.

Best Taskman - thanks, good tip.

check also (not in Ovi) if you can find jbak task manager - it's a bit like Best Taskman but with more features. And it's free.
Just 'go*gle' it ...
