Mine last from about 7 in the morning until 9 or 10 at night before it gets to low. I'm on it all day tho, And I don't use wifi.

A more useful measure can be found in System Settings - Usage - Time Since Last Full Charge

I get about 7 hours of actual usage before it dies. standby can go for days.

phone calls and edge data transfers kill it fastest. Video and youtube, too.

Music playback with the screen off will go for a really long time.

Same here. #5 lasts about 7 1/2 hours with well rounded usage. Standby... I don't think I have let it go for more than 2 days, just because I am using it most of the time.

lasts all day, from 6am to 7pm usually.

that's with internet use and texting all day. i listen to music for a few hours, with periodic calls and picture taking. no wifi.

btw, its good practice to charge it almost every night, and reboot it at least once a week. It helps keep the battery conditioned.

Mine used to be great, it would only have used two thirds of the battery life after a day. But now, since I joined iRovr, I'm not getting a day out of it lol (I've not checked exactly what I'm getting). This could also be because I am off school (Easter Holidays :D), and am using it all day, combined with the fact that when I am in school, it sits in it's dock charging when I get home while I do my homework.

Conclusion:
iRovr eats power like a tyrant!
