    With Wifi on it will last from morning to evening, with wifi disabled i guess 4-6 days with some small calls and texting, but mostly on standby..

    I am finding mine is toast in about 1 day - although it has quite a long life running on empty. Also I am a fairly new user so I am playing with it a lot.
    Will give it a full charge tonight and see how it copes with non-weekend office usage (fewer games!).. and report back.

    Note, I have advanced app killer which should hopefully be keeping down the amount of cruft running.

    In a business day of light usage and after hours with moderate usage i'd have maybe 30% left from a full charge. I'm by no means hammering its potential either (data off). The unit has poor life. period.
    4 to 6 days? I'd love to see that.
    There must be some huge variation in battery quality. Best thing i did to improve life was load Launcher Pro to get a black wall paper..
    Now that i think of it i maybe safe to turn off (very good) call blocker "Easy Filter" now. May improve things.

    Ya that seems to be the case here as well.. competely concks off by 11 in the night.. though the phone is only about 3 days old.. thought may be it had some thing to do with charging and apps... But pls do tell me if I decide to install launcher Pro and if tomorrow I do not need it , will the samsung UI come back automatically or some thing needs to be done to get it back on track..

    If you have WIFI on, it will drain your battery like crazy. Try to charge up your phone and turn wifi off for a couple of days and see how your battery are doing. Mine is at 50% today after 3 days in mostly std.by..and Wifi, Bluetoot and GPS disabled...

    I leave wifi/data/gps etc off unless i need them. And i prefer pull email to push as well so thats a bonus.
    Screen timeout set at 30s but i usually kill it with power button as and when.

    You can toggle between Launcher Pro and the stock TW via the central Home Key with nil hassle. If dont want LP after trying it, just uninstall. Its unlikely that you will though : )

    Reporting in! Quite impressed so far - my Galaxy S had a full charge 28 hours ago, and is now just at halfway (still blue). I have been using it mainly for texts and short phonecalls. I caught a 405lb sturgeon, and surfed the web a bit, but I've not been using WiFi or GPS.

    I have the screen brightness set to minimum, and I am running Advanced Task Killer.. although I am not sure how well it works .... at the mo I have Social Hub & Email running, even though I have never used these apps... Hmm.

    Generally happy though - I feel like I am not going to get "caught out" by my battery.

    Ok, so I reckon I get nearly 48hrs out of a full charge, if I am not being too heavy on network usage etc. Battery stats say that it's nearly all screen & cell phone standby.

    Oh yeah, I've stopped using automated Task Killers (at all) based on the advice given across the web. I really wish that there was a bit more advice forthcoming from Google & Samsung about how best to use our phones.
