They both use the same battery.

It's because CDMA uses more power than GPRS for a continuously-open connection. CDMA has a bigger inability to 'sleep' during an idle connection than GPRS.

If you want long battery life, you have to switch to GPRS (by switching to Cingular or T-Mobile). But Verizon's reception can be better in many areas.

VeriChat only lasts about 8 to 16 hours on 7250.... but VeriChat can last 75 to 100 hours nonstop on a 7290.
