I get great battery life too. I'm usually going 24+ without having to charge it. Disable "back up my data", turn off that instant upload to Google+, get rid of vzw backup, use wifi at home. Sounds like you got a bad phone or battery.

Op get the phone that works for you. But I must admit I get decent battery life. Underclocking with setcpu along with some other things really helped me along with the rom I am running. When my phone is in my pocket or when I am texting I turn mobile data off.
Use setcpu to set screen off to 700/350
Go into settings, data use, check set limit. Find apps like market, g+, twitter, and other social apps. click and check "restrict background data".
go into settings, wireless & networks and uncheck nfc.
Make sure wifi, bluetooth, gps are unchecked when not in use on your power control widget.
I personally also uncheck auto sync on my power control widget.
Also when I use my phone as an ipod/mp3 player I turn off turn off auto sync and mobile data.
That has helped me. I will go 12 hours and at least have 30% battery life left with heavier use, 75 % left with light usage.
its amazing how many extended batteries verizon sold. its such a small increase that it barely does anything! im waiting for a real manly extended battery comes out. 3400+!

1. When saying what phone or rom you have, make sure to include the word rocking or rockin as a verb in the sentence.
Seidio has a 3800 coming out but it won't support nfc. What we really need is a new battery tech such as silver-zinc. Same size 50% more power. I'd pay 100 bucks for a stock size extended life battery.
Also, I get great battery life with my Nexus, though we are all different types of users. Hope you enjoy the Razr Maxx when it comes out
