Could it be that you are over charging it?
And another cause of it that I read on crackberry.com is that because os 6 can multi task, apps run at the same time and are sometimes hidden. When you are finished with an app, don't just hit the exit key. Hit the blackberry logo button (menu button) and scroll down and physically close the app. You'd be surprised how much power those secretely running apps drain.

You can't really "overcharge" a lithium battery. In fact, it is best to keep them topped up.
As for battery life, it depends on too many factors, so what you get really has no bearing on what others can expect. These factors include how much you use it for calls, surfing, GPS, music, videos, etc. and data intensive apps running in the background.
On the weekends, I get 2 days out a charge on my 9800. During the week, maybe 10 hours.
