    Running De-Sensed Das BAMF 1.4 with the 4.3a kernel produced by Adrynalyne (also maker of the rom).

    23 hours 28m 42 seconds with 12% left! Got tired of it begging to be plugged in so I did. I wasn't easy on it either, over an hour of youtube videos and tons of bluetooth/non-bluetooth calls/texts/emails. And yes, I'm in Los Angeles, CA and have 4G. I'd say 80% was on WiFi and the rest on 4G.

    Edit: Running stock battery fyi.

    How?

    That's a lot. I put my normal battery back before, and when I start using it (keeping screen on all the time, not even going online) it drains over 30% in an hour. An hour of youtube videos alone would kill about 30-40% of my battery on normal battery. Bluetooth which is never on mine etc if I keep the screen on for too long would drain it a LOT more.

    Idk how people are getting 24 hours on this phone, especially with a lot of use...that's just crazy.

    6 Hours of streaming! Wow. I admit I wouldn't get that long of battery life if I streamed for 6 hours. I'm tempted to get the extended battery but with my current times/usage I'm ok. Can you tell me if the Extended Battery case has the metal contacts for the Bluetooth and normal antenna on it like the stock battery case does? I've read a review that it doesn't and it hurts reception.

    @ alboboy10 -- No clue really why some people get 3-4 hours. I got ~11 hours with stock. Right now, I have all syncing except Google and Facebook (once a day) turned off. I have brightness manually controlled at 30%. Running a kernel that uses almost no battery when the screen is off. And running a De-Sensed Rom. :/ All I can say is, don't trust your battery meter, go till it starts asking for a charge. The battery meter is inconsistent. Example, from 100-80% might take an hour but 80%-30% will take 10-20 hours (for me).
