Default Awful battery life

My friend just bought an Elite over the weekend, has added very few apps and is getting terrible battery life (unplugged at 7am, 20-30% by noon with just occasional checking). I have a Triumph on a Froyo ROM , have push email & numerous other notifications turned on & on a day of fairly regular usage & time spent in a poor signal area, mine is sitting right at 70% at 3:20 pm after coming off the charger at 7:45 this morning.

From what I understand, the Elite has a larger battery, smaller screen & slower processor (have the MT OC'd at 1.4 Ghz), so I would think it would be getting at least the battery life of the MT, if not better.

I advised her to take it back to where she purchased it & do an exchange for a new unit- it sounds to me like she might have a lemon phone/battery. Seem like the right advice?
