I'm still unrooted (and will likely remain so until Gingerbread is pushed). I'd tried JuiceDefender for a time and it had an effect, but the radios wouldn't always wake up and I'd have to reboot the phone. I finally uninstalled it. I work in a city that recently got 4G and live in another that doesn't have it, so my phone switches when I cross the border. Before my work city got 4G, I had the radio turned off and would get 8-10 hours on the standard battery. When 4G was turned on at work I didn't notice much difference, but like I say it's not on 4G 24/7. The extended battery easily lasts 16 hours for me, but since I got the desk dock, I let the phone sit in the dock at work and power isn't an issue even with the standard battery. - MarkC
