    I have noticed that with my battery also... BUT the OTA did fix my rebooting problem, and has made the phone run a bit quicker also....

    My battery seems to be fine after the update. I haven't seen any noticeable difference. I have done most of the recommended settings to maximize battery life (only push email, sync social stuff once every 3 hours, display set to <25% brightness, peak times for email, etc)

    I had the extended battery in when I got the update, and for the first day or so, the battery life was so good (still above 95% after six hours or so) that I put the regular battery back in to slim down the phone. It seemed like the battery life was sucking yesterday (less than 85% after being unplugged for an hour), but I think I'll give it a few days before I go back to the extended battery.

    "Heavy use" for one person may be light use to another. What's your display % at and what's the total time it has been on?
    Settings > about phone > battery > battery use > display

    That's the biggest use of battery with these phones if you "heavily use it"

    I've got the 2750, been off since 8a.m. and I'm at 58% - total display time on for 2h 38m

    will this require me to redownload all apps? and i should still have my contacts all saved to my google account, right?

    right now i have my TB customized with go launcher pretty well... so a factory reset would be a PITA

    it was bad before, but that was "normal" considering the battery itself is small and the htc processor is very powerful. logical that its weak when u combine the two

    NOW, i've noticed that sometimes i'd get very rapid battery drain like 80-->40% in an hour or so if i haven't checked the phone. something must be draining it and the android OS can't figure out on its own how to stop it.

    I got about 12 to 18 hours before the update and I still get 12 to 18 hours after the update. So in IMO it didn't suck before and it doesn't suck now.

    I had problems also after ota install and after a factory reset it was good for a while and then became bad again. Now I've performed a second factory rest and I am enabling accounts one at a time to see if I can tell what is causing the battery drain. If I were you, i would turn off sync on all account to see if that helps. If not, it could be an app.
