To conserve energy, it would be great to turn off or dim interface, also turn off lights on battery through Ego Connect.

The lights/interface use so little power compared to to "real" loads that it really isn't much of a savings....

If memory serves, there are 3 LEDs on the old style batteries. Green LEDs need 3V at 20mA, so that's 60mW each or 0.18W total. The 5Ahr battery conservatively has 260Whr and if it lasts for 30 minutes, the LEDs robbed you of 0.035% of the run-time, or 0.6 seconds. :)
