Optimize Battery Life on the LG Optimus S

Problem

Some users have reported battery life issues with the LG Optimus S.  While users on a variety of forums point to high time without service readings as a cause, this has not been definitively identified by Google/Sprint/LG as the key contributor to poor battery life.

Resolution

While there is no definitive resolution at this time, some users have reported that toggling Airplane mode On and Off seems to help somewhat.  In addition, there are some general tips to conserve battery life that may be beneficial.  Please see the Conserve Battery Life device simulation in the Device Tutorials for additional specifics.
