Help HELP: Battery Life DRAINING on DL30 SuperClean

Hi all,

I'm on DL30 superclean and I have my screen brightness turned up, 3g on, playing a hulu video through the hulu.apk, and my battery is literally dropping at 1% per minute or more. So after a full charge, I watched a 25 minute hulu episode and my battery was literally at 68% (down from 100% a mere 25 minutes before). Has anyone else experienced this degree of battery drain or am I the only one? I understand that the amount of 3g data transfer a full ep video is using as well as the processor power that decoding a video of this res requires a good amount of battery power, but is this really the amount it normally needs?

I can watch a pre-transferred movie on my SD card via the act1 video app and it drains no where near this amount of juice. I mean a full 1.5 hour full screen movie encoded in mp4 takes maybe 20-25%.

Any advice or opinions would be greatly appreciated!
Here's something that might work that I read in another link, forget where. I had copied the directions down in a Word file with all my fascinate tips that I read. Apologies to the source for not citing them.
