Coming from a Droid, my awareness of battery useage and proximity to a charger/outlet was raised to the Nth after using Blackberry for so many years. Android in general, was a battery hog.
My question to the new converts, and even those that upgraded to the 4S, has your obsession with being near a charger at all times lessened because of the dual core processor and other power saving features? Mine is coming down to a normal level, after seeing my standby times somewhere near 20 hours with light use. But, usually if I have to go out (gym, running, recently apple and pumpkin picking) I will top off the phone..... just in case.

Yesterday, I missed my bus and had to walk to my doc's appointment. When I had my Evo and did that, with no usage, it went down to about 75% in the time it takes me to walk, however, with my 4S, I was still on 99%, when I got there. I'm a lot less worried about it.

I generally keep mine charged/topped off. In the car it's plugged in, at home it's plugged in for those just in case monuments when it's time to go to the gym, mall etc
Btw if you are having battery issues worse than everyone else, it's probably best to restore phone as new...

I've been charging mine about once a day. Depending on usage, I have sometimes gone two days on a single charge. This is amazing compared to my android phone which needed to be charged religiously multiple times a day due to the poor reception I get on campus.
