    Was getting over 24 hours, everyday, with average use using Th3ory 2.4. Just flashed Codename Android 1.1.1...will report back on that later.

    I get about 20, a little more if I don't use it as much(if that's not obvious? lol), so probably maybe even up to a day. This is running Interactive for the cpu. Conservative I get more, that's for school when I'm not using it much, better life. Running Build 15 on Franco Kernel.

    I didn't get better battery life with Codename...pretty good but not better than Axiom.

    Using Juice Defender, Axiom 2.4, and lean kernel and nearly always getting 24 hours on a charge. This includes playing games, browsing, texts, calls, updates/downloads, and reading news/forums. Always have a heavy screen time but still get about all day with what I consider normal use.

    Juice Defender Ultimate, Axiom 2.4, 3g, wifi when available, low brightness, 30 second screen timeout, and No Frills CPU (down to 350 MHz with screen off).

    It may seem like a lot to do but once it is set up, you are good.

    I get around 15 hours with moderate use on the extended battery with the stock phone, 4G and WiFi always on, GPS and Bluetooth on demand only, manually set screen brightness (medium or high). I get four bars of 4G at work and two at home and I'd say I use 4G about 1/5 of the time vs. WiFi.

    Standby time is outstanding. One day I had very light use and still had 76% of the battery left after 15.5 hours off the charger.

    Mine has improved greatly since I went to Axiom 2.4 and eliminated the power-button awake time bug. I was only getting 5-6 hours on fairly heavy use (not a big deal as I can charge whenever at work). But since the change I get 12-14, and this is with 4g and BT always on (all of my data use is 4g). And I agree, standby time has gone crazy. With the bug I might have only gotten 5-6 hours of standby time. Now on weekends (when I don't play with my phone as much) I go to bed and my phone is at 75%, so I'd guess 2 days of standby time at least.

    And I know 12-14 doesn't sound like much, but I use my phone a lot and always on 4g, and it gets me thru a day easy, so I'm extremely happy with it.

    This is mine daily now(I don't keep it off the charger like this anymore, this was just testing how well it does do. I go to bed (off charger from 730am every day but weekends) around 12 with half left. If you're not on aokp or a rom with deep sleep(once kicked in, deep sleep actually gives you a little gains in battery too. Only like 1 or 2%, but still) and ROM Control options, I'd switch. I used to be on Axiom 2.4 and as much as I liked it, it has no more support and this better. Much more customization options too. I'm on this and lean Kernel.). Everyone's phones will vary obviously.
    This is with light to moderate use, and probably about 40 minutes pretty heavy use. Minus me sleeping of course. I had my phone in the computer for about 10minutes by the way in this picture.
