I'm pretty sure this has been covered in another post.
It depends what you have running and how frequently you tweak your phone. I know I noticed a huge drop in battery life immediately after I jailbroke, but that was because I was on Cydia and Rock every 10 minutes just checking out what I can do.
Now that I have my phone how I want it I haven't noticed a difference in battery life compared to pre-jailbreak.

Actually, more likely it's a process that gets running in the background that you don't see. It will all depend on what you install after you jailbreak as to what runs in the background. Often time a restart will fix some of it, but you should also install something like SBSettings to see what processes are running, and kill those you aren't using ( leave phone and mail running though ).

i'm not completely sold that SBSettings reveals Everything that runs in the background
there have been 3 or 4 times that my battery life went so fast, as a result of tweaking the device, it was a joke,
but after doing a Restore as New and Re-JB all was good
Pain. In. The. A$$. but, well worth it
