Default Re: BB 9900 poor battery life

My dissatisfaction comes from the fact that my BB 9700 used to go 3 days without a charge.

Since there's no O/S update that will get me an improvement, I'll leave it at that.

Thanks everyone for your input.
I have a 9900 running 7.1 Bundle 2061 (v7.7.0.714.Platform I charge it on a Sunday night, use it primarily for some Emails, BBM, Text,calendar (work appts) and calls each day and turn it off when at home after work so it is on for about 12hrs per day.
I am getting on average 4.5 days of battery life before getting down to 20% so I have no reason to complain.
I do not tend to browse via carrier and if at home and browsing, it uses WiFi.
I have read a number of posts that relate to differing lengths of battery life.
