Battery Has Been Good
I upgraded to 4.1 last night and did a full charge overnight. Turned on the phone 7am this morning and have been using it for mail, pictures and text messages and the battery has been steady. No gaming though.
Curretly 6 hours later, the batter is at 75% capacity.

just out of curiosity, the ones with the power drain, are yours JB?
mine is not, and mine is fine battery wise, just wondering if apple are able to target JB phones via the update and sabotage them?
might be p**sing in the wind but you never know

Yep Me too
4.1 installed on 4G and my battery life is less than half of what was. I took it off the charger at 9am this morning and at 2pm it was dead. Normal usage. Not JB. It seems that a lot of people are having this problem. Google: ios4.1 battery life. There are dozens of forums addressing the same problem, I don't see a solution yet.

Try letting the battery drain to where it shuts the phone off. Then give it a nice full charge and see what happens. It could be a software thing where the new update was installed when you had lower battery and it thinks of that now as 100%. Again let your battery die completely and then let it charge to 100%. Do NOT use the phone while it is charging back up.

I finished my day off on my iPhone 4 running the new 4.1. 13 hours of standby and 3 hours of usage. Push email for two exchanges, calendar pushes, 20+ emails, several texts, a few 5 minute phone calls, and some web browsing. I have 62% left.
This is on par with if not better battery life than 4.0.2.
I am obviously not jb since they are still working on that.

I tired this yesterday after reading your comment on here. With 4.1 I was having bad battery. And the one of the main reasons i came back to Iphone was because they got a better battery. So usually I would get up at 8:30am and unplug my phone, do a little email reading/deleting/responding about 2 calls total 5 mins. By the time i got to work around 9:30am or so i was down to like 95%.
After doing what you suggested I noticed a difference and today it was a busier email day and 2 more calls then usual... 1 hour later im at 98%.
Hope this keeps up
