Having tried everything listed in the 20+ topics on the subject (Screebl, Brightness, JuiceDefender, etc, etc) and still dealing with pretty awful battery life I was desperatly looking for something to help me make it though the day... I was poking around in settings when I found a setting that seems to have really helped a lot. From home... Menu > Settings > Wireless & Networks > Mobile Networks (second one) > Enable Always-On -- checked by default, I unchecked it. It says in its description that it may cause battery drain 'on certain' networks. Gentleman, I think by certain, they mean CDMA. I lost the first 15% of my battery (100% down yes 85%) this morning with the phone sitting asleep while I showered and got dressed to go to work. About an hour, I didn't touch it. Tonight, I took it off the charger at 6:00 -- with fairly moderate use, few calls, 25+ texts, 5-10 emails and a bit of browsing, it was down to 85% at 8:36. JuicePlotter backs up my suspicion. If you decide to try it, post up what change you notice; I hope it helps you guys as much as it has me.
