i take my phone off the charger around 6:30am. by the time i get home around 5:30pm, on an average, i will have about 2-2.5 hrs of usage with about 50% of battery remaining
i get a lot of texts, notifications and emails throughout the day and always use vibrate mode

Yesterday was a good test for my iP4 battery after upgrading to 4.3.2 . Heavy texting, downloaded 12 photos and was constantly checking the weather. (tornados in the area) Started the day at 100% when I got up at 6:30am and the battery was at 49% when I went to bed at 11:45pm. I am very happy with the battery performance. The battery is so much better after upgrading to 4.3.1 and even a little better after going with4.3.2. Don't understand why so many of you are having such poor battery performance. Would jailbreaking have any affect on the battery? Mine isn't, so I was just wondering.

when you jailbreak it gives you the ability to run apps/processes on the device that "normal" users would never experience, thus using more battery. also, some jailbroken apps/tweaks are not written very well and could run in the background without you really knowing it and kill your battery at a rapid rate. this is when the frustration sets in with new people to the jailbreak scene.. they are quick to say that the jailbreak itself causes battery drain when in actuality it is some app or tweak that causes it and by simply removing it will correct the issue. this can be hard to find if you are downloading multiple jailbroken apps/tweaks so then it becomes a process of elimination and very time consuming to troubleshoot and in turn make any newcomers say that "jailbreaking sucks" or "kills your battery"
it takes a lot of trial & error to get it right..
i did upgrade to 4.3.2 this morning, again, and jailbroke with redsn0w.. so far the battery seems decent
