all the battery articles/threads say turn the wi-fi off if you aren't using it. BUT in my personal experience it acts more like a mobile phone trying to find a network. if you are within range of a wifi network you have access to, having wifi switched on won't really effect your battery that much. if you aren't, and it is constantly looking for a network, the battery will go down much quicker.
that's if you aren't using it. i listen to a 3 1/2 hour radio show over wifi, this will drain the battery quite drastically.
joaquinx is right about the brightness, you should have that set on the lowest setting which is acceptable to you.
it also depends what you are doing with it. are you playing videos/games? they will drain the battery very quickly. if you are just listening to audio, the battery will last much longer.
