    How long does your battery last? Since Froyo, my battery lasts 5-8 hours. before Froyo I got about 24 hours. I have everything set off, no notifications, nothing refreshing and no task killers.

    Mine lasts over a day, but I charge it every night before I go to bed. It usually goes down to 60-50% before the night.

    Today I pulled my phone off the charger at 7 AM, it's at 50% right now but it's been a light usage day.
    About 5 minutes of calls, a few texts (GV), a few checks of newsrob and Engadget, a few checks on Tapatalk and a few checks here (few = 2 each probably, texts = 5).
    Now that I'm home I will start making/getting calls and the battery will be dead by 8:30 - 9, sooner if I play any games.
    Some days I get about 6 hours, some days 12 hours, some days I can make it all the way 'til 11 or so when I go to bed.
    Battery life does seem worse after Froyo though. I'm resorting to buying a charger and extra battery...would never have thought about that pre-Froyo.

    I had that problem after the update too. Five hours with virtually no use, compared to 20-23 hours before. Had to do a factory reset. I've seen some other people on here that have had the same problem, factory reset worked for some but not all.

    I'm rooted and overclocked, and I use mine pretty regularly (send 10 emails/get emails constantly, send/receive 20-30 texts each way, spend about 45 minutes talking on the phone, check facebook/twitter a few times and browse the internet reading news for about 2 hours a day) and manage to get about 19 hours on a single charge.
