    Go into settings.
    Make sure you are in airplane mode.
    Turn off gps.
    Manually lower screen brightness.
    If you don't need them, turn off Bluetooth and wireless.
    You should see a big improvement.

    Worst thing you can do is to have a lithium battery device and never use it. You're supposed to charge it fully before letting sit unused for long periods and then charge overnight before using again. You can try cycling (draining and recharging) it a few times to recondition the battery. Otherwise, if you still only get 15minutes, your battery may be kaput.
