Disabling Ping can help save your battery life. Every firmware update seems to lower battery life more and more. Here is a very easy way to get that extra bit of juice out of your iOS battery.
Disabling services such as Ping, Apple’s social network, or other services that you are not using will help improve your battery life. To disable these services you need to click on Settings -> General -> Restrictions (Enable Restrictions if it is disabled) and then from there turn of Ping. (Please note that this is only available in iOS 4.3+)

I have disabled this ping. I was wondering why in the **** my battery was dying so fast. I will give this a try and will report back maybe by the end of the day to give my complete answer onto whether it has made a difference. Thanks for this info!
