    It's been a little over 48 hours since I installed the update and each day, with similar use as before, my battery life has been about 25% better each day so far.

    e.g. Normally I would get home from work with about 50% battery life. After the update I've come home with 75% battery life each day so far.

    This makes no sense. I was one of the "I have no battery issues" guys. Even with heavy usage, my battery would easily last me 22+ hours.

    Since the update, I've been watching my battery drop by 1% every few minutes. Within the past hour, it's dropped almost 20% with moderate texting and occasional browsing.

    Looking at my battery usages, Android System is using 49% O_O. Wtf?

    This is pissing me off.

    For heavy use, it appears to be the same. I haven't really seen how it does in idle, as I havn't gotten the chance, but my idle battery life was very good before the update, given the right conditions. Considering the CPU optimizations 2.2 brings, I can see it being better, but not that much better.

    What I will like to see is when I set juice defender on (or disable my APN entirely) and see how much battery life I can really save. If it could extend my battery life beyond 2 days, that would be impressive.

    I had pretty good battery life with 2.1...24-30 with moderate use I get 5 hours playing on the phone and half an hour talk and I still have 30% of battery left.

    Now with 2.2 it's 12 hours of light use... play time is under 3 hours and battery is 20% left :(

    This makes me very sad with Froyo. I might actually need to use the extra battery I bought with my Nexus but didn't need.
