I have an Arrive and after Mango my battery life was reduced to 50%. I tried EVERYTHING... or so I thought.
Then I thought maybe a phone reset would work. Well, as much as it's a pain in the **** to re-set up your phone IT WORKS!
Well it did for me! *Hugs the Arrive*
Oh and yeah make sure all connections you don't use are off! When you reset you phone it auto turns on wifi, location, and zune connection!

I noticed that my battery life was amazing today. Good if not better than it was pre-Mango. However, I didn't use the People hub at all today and I wonder if that has something to do with it."Engineering is more than just the number of megapixels." - Stephen Elop

You can also try just running your phone down until it stops. When I first did the upgrade this summer my battery seemed a little short lived until one time I could not recharge it when it got down to zero. I ended up running with zero battery for several hours before the phone finally shut down. Now things seem more normal again.

I did a reset last week and I'm back to the phone saying I'll have 8 hours battery life from a full charge. I installed BoardExpress and the Stocks apps the night before. Could one of those be doing it? They've since been uninstalled, but my time is still low.

After a steady decline in battery life I bit the bullet and hard reset the phone. Immediately upon power back up the battery life read 1 day 5 hours, whereas in previous days the best I was seeing was 10 hours. So, 10hrs improved to 29hrs. We'll see if that's how it actually performs.
When I was only seeing 10hrs of activity (and I did run the battery all the way down a few times and the best I got was 12 hrs) I had location off, wifi off, xbox live off. But thru wp7 i was signed into facebook linked in and twitter. I had lots of apps, but my last attempt at improving battery life before resetting was to kill all third party apps, but it didn't make a difference.

Regardless, in my case the battery life is staying put at it's new level. I started the 3rd day of use since my original post with the meter reading 1 day 7 hours remaining (where my previous best was 10 hours). So, today I unplugged from the charger at 8am, and used it fairly lightly (sent a few emails, twitter, fb, and google mail's all logged in, location on, wifi on, 3g on), and it's not 6pm (10hr later) and I'm shoing 76% battery remaining/21 hours remaining.
I've only reinstalled a fraction of all the original crap I had on my phone, but still a few tasks that run in the background and update tiles/push, etc: Carbon (with full notifications activated), Facebook (same), and Wonder Reader (same).
Interestingly, yesterday I re-installed "Armed!"the only game that I really played, and instantly I saw my battery expectancy drop back into a terrible zone of approximately 10% per hour. Even with notifications off and the app not even running in the past hour something was still sucking life from the battery at about 3 times the regular rate. I uninstalled the game, and battery life is again normal. Smoking Gun perhaps? I suppose I would have to actually let the phone drain down once with the app installed and once without, to really know... but I need to use my phone and don't want to just use it for experiments.
