I have tried below tricks and it can extend battery life:
1. Go to "Option" menu --> "Device" -->"Advanced System Settings"
2. Go to "Browser Push" and "Disable Push"
You can disable notification of the groups. The phone is busy all the time retrieving the notification. This can consume battery life.
1. Go to "BBM" icon and go to any of group you have
2. Go to the top of the heading, and click
3. on the bottom side, you will find "Turn Off All Notifications For This Group" and choose "YES"
Change 2G & 3G to be 2G setting, to use only GPRS for chatting. If you don't want to receive e-mail notification and use only chatting, GPRS is more than enough. Using 3G will consume more power i believe...
Turn Off manually the GPS location. Bold 9900 does not come with automatic turn-off for GPS.
On your BBM profile, choose "options" and then go to "miscellaneous", then un-tick "Show Chats in Messages Application"
I have done above above tricks and can expand battere life from 12 hours to be 24 hours.
Please try and give the comments.

Hey guys and girls,
I've had my 9900 for a while now and I'm on my OS is 184.108.40.2064 - platform 220.127.116.115. I have a brand new battery and still with this when I turn my phone off at night and on again in the morning I'm losing 15-20% battery life.
Any ideas what may be causing such a heavy loss? I log out of all social media and the only thing that's connected to anything is BBM. I have bluetooth, wifi and NFC all off and I constantly keep my device on 2g.
Would it be a good idea for me to wipe my device and re-install the OS from scratch? If so, what's the dest way to wipe the device and OS completely? I've had a search about and all I can find is the security wipe to get rid of data.
Thanks in advance.
