    I thought my battery life was awful before on .229 ICS leak. This is worse (on 6.7.232 ICS leak) listening to iHeartRadio and TuneIn for a few hours in 3G (EV-DO) only mode my battery is already at 30% (with the standard OEM battery).
    I also have Juice Defender running too. Would hate to see stats for the battery without it.

    See attached screenshots.

    Try wiping your cache in recovery. Good Luck,

    You might try a battery calibration app from the play store. You may find that your phone will get down to 5%, but then stay at 5% a long time before it finally dies. That happened to me when I installed the 905 GB leak for the first time. It did the same thing, drained really quick initially, but then ended up having a pretty reasonable amount of battery time. I calibrated the battery and it went back to normal!

    Didn't work. Using the EXTENDED battery. I only got about 7 hours before the battery was down to 35%. The phone wasn't in use much either. I hope Motorola gets this fixed in later versions.

    Would matter for battery life. This battery was charged 8 hrs ago.

    Well it would matter. 2 of the top 3 battery usage stats are streaming music and facebook (data)

    Prior to ICS leaks never had problems with these same apps, under the same conditions.
