7. WHEN IN WIFI SWITCH OFF DATA NETWORK

It's look funny as when you are in wifi why data network affected. But in some iPhone / iPad / iPod due to of weak wifi signal or any other cause data connection still working (as reported by Mitesh) so when you are in wifi radious its advisable to turned off data network so can save battery.

8. WHEN IN MOVE TO INTERCITY choose to off AUTOMATIC CARRIERS

It's quite hidden but when you are traveling to one city (like Jaipur) to other (like Chandigarh) if the Automatic carriers option is ON, your battery juice is leaking.
With the Automatic selection, the iPhone will actually bounce between carriers depending on strongest signal or closest tower.
Reason is simple when iPhone cross each tower radios signal to other tower it ask for carriers each & every time and kill the battery. So if you have a national player (like Airtel) better choose to turned off Automatic of carriers choice.

9. TURN OFF AUTO / REDUCE BRIGHTNESS

The iPhone has an ambient light sensor that adjusts the brightness of the screen based on the light around it (darker in dark places, brighter when there's more ambient light) to both save battery and make it easier to see. Turn Auto-Brightness on and you’ll save battery because your screen will need to use less power in dark places.

Needless to say, the brighter the default setting for the screen, the more battery it requires. Keep the screen dimmer to conserve more of your battery.

10. TURN OFF LOCATION SERVICES

One of the coolest features of the iPhone is its built-in GPS. This allows your phone to know where you are and give you exact driving directions, give that information to apps that help you find restaurants, and more. But, like any service that sends data over a network, it needs battery power to work. If you’re not using Location Services, and don’t plan to right away, turn them off and save some power.

11. AUTO LOCK SOONER

You can set your iPhone to automatically go to sleep – a feature known as Auto-Lock - after a certain amount of time. The sooner it sleeps, the less power is used to run the screen or other services. Try setting Auto-Lock to 1 or 2 minutes.

12. BLUETOOTH OFF

Nevertheless to say that running bluetooth in background also takes juice so pls put it off when not use.
Find it in Settings> General> Bluetooth> Move Slider to Off.

13. KEEP IT COOL

If you're outside, don't leave your phone facing the direct sunlight. If you can pull it off without looking like a hyper-aggressive real estate agent, belt-clip your phone, or generally keep it out of your pocket and away from close quarters with your body heat.

Interesting Tip: if you have iPhone 3Gs or later you can add battery percentage to the status bar. It give more accurate idea of battery left.
This is enabled by going to Settings>General>Usage.
