If you can stay in a good service area or on Wifi, then that will be a low power draw.
Really? Man, I must be doing something wrong. I get awful battery life. Rooted, stock ROM. Here, I took some screenshots from two separate days last week:

Day 1:

Day 2:

This is from when I take the phone off the charger at around 8:15 to head to work until whenever I took the screenshots, approx. 6 hours later, so early afternoon. I think the most annoying part is that, as you can see, the random reboots can cost me up to ten percent of my battery. It's very irritating.
These teeth are razor sharp...
