    Im on 1.1.2 and I dont use my phone as much other here. but this is what i get out on mine. Brightness is set to about 25% and on Auto.
    I use mine for about 3 hours off talk time on bluetooth, 2hours of web sufing ,music, texting etc... about 5 1/2 hour total and with 5 days of standby. all this bewteen charges.

    Yuu may like to set Brightness to about 30% and you if can go all day with out checking e-mail set it to manual so at 4pm you can go check e-mail and save battery. These battery have a cycle of 400 so if you charging everyday you battery after a year will only hold about 80% fo its total charge. Just a sugestion if you like your battery to go longer.

    Default Use a FLAT EQ when listening to music
    Yep if you want to save even more battery life then set your Equalizer to flat during iPod music playback.

    Using an equalizer setting means that the iPhone's processor has to work harder to produce the effect and uses up more power.

    MY ONE LASTS for ever
    Iphone Love... I dreamed of a iphone before it was out..

    turn off pxl daemon

    i wrote a script that turns off everything non essential during the day...
    I was thinking of that as well. Do you have a GUI app for that or you just run the script through the Terminal on the iphone?

    For others, here are some Battery saving tips and facts I use to Maximum battery life:

    1) When at home, and near my laptop, I plug in the iphone to the USB cable and let it use the power from the laptop to run.

    2) Set it to auto-Lock after 1 or 2 minutes so it saves more power.

    3) Write/use a script, or just manually turn off unnecessary services as most people mentioned: SSH, WiFi, Apache (if you installed it), AFP, Bluetooth, Edge, etc. It makes sense: more processes and tasks equals more memory and CPU usage, which means more power usage. I found a really nice application called Sysinfo, I think you can find it through Installer. Their website is http://www.robota.nl/articles/iPhone%20Repository. You can kill any process through this program. Another program is called Services, it has 4 turn off switches for SSH, Edge, WiFi and Bluetooth.. easy and nice GUI.

    4) I usually set brightness to 10%-20% with Auto.

    5) Put ringtone volume around 30 to 50% and try to use headphones more than the speakers of the iphone. Louder iphones means more battery usage.

    6) When you are using the iphone as Ipod and Music only, try to turn off the EQ since it uses more CPU power.

    7) Restart the iphone once when charging the battery in case there are too many applications running.

    8) When an application is not responding, press and hold the Home button for about 6 seconds to kill it.

    9) When at work, take that white USB cable with you its light and thin..

    Hope it helps

    I'm on 1.1.1 and the battery doesn't last more than 2 days.

    I've set brightness at 30% and on Auto, Ipod EQ and WiFi is off. Just log on to update the Installer every day, download a couple of themes and that's it. I send around 10-15 messages a day, make about 4 phone calls (no more than 5' each).

    I think the battery should last a bit longer with the little use I'm giving it so far.

    I have an iPhone with 1.1.1 firmware. I always keep the WiFi turned off until I'm ready to use it and I can go 2 days with almost constant text messaging. I don't really call as much as I text so that saves a ton of battery life for me. Just my 2 cents.

    Default charging issues
    I'm on 1.1.2, jailbroken for about 1 month now and have noticed decreased battery life and very long charging times. I am running customize, summerboard, Wetool, netserveces, open ssh, chess. nes, mms, five dice vnotes and blackjack. I always have wifi and ssh turned off unless it is being used. Check email on manual, brightness on 1/3 etc. I use my phone throughout the day, not too often and short calls. dont stay on wifi very long either. Anyways the battery used to last about 1 1/2 - 2 days and now less than 1 day. Before it would charge overnight with no problem. I use my wall charger and turn it off after i plug it in . Now by morning it has only charged up to about 75-80%. If i leave the phone on while charging i does say full charge however i suspect otherwise due to the short battery life. ALso on two occasios the battery has been fully drained. ANY suggestions welcomed and sorry for the long post.

    i have v.1.1.2 and my phone only lasts for about 4-5 hours after taking it off the charger. some days it lasts for maybe an hour or 2 longer.. but is that supposed to be normal? i can't even go half a day without having to charge the fkn thing..
