Nokia 6500 Classic- somewhat desperate battery life?

I bought a 6500 in something of a hurry when I totalled another T-Mobile MDA. Its a lovely device and a pleasure to use but it seems to have a very short battery life- it struggles to do two days of sitting there making perhaps a call a day, between charges. Now the battery is pretty dinky so I wasn't expecting miracles but this seems pretty woeful and means that for international use, a second battery will be required.

Its been a while since I have owned an Nokia so many of the settings are a little vague- active standby is currently off as an exact description of what it actually does is hard to come by. Are there any settings that can usefully extend the standby time of the handset?
