I'm tempted to buy an 7500 mAh extended battery and forget about it; the stock batteries are too small.

I'm ~9 hours since last charge, been almost constantly streaming music from internet radio via cell then Wi-Fi network. I also had a few calls. I'm still on 25 pc juice left.
To be honest I've never been better on any custom ROMs so far... even tempted to stay unrooted for the time being just to see if there's any change in the coming days.
You might be on to something there. Some experts contend rooting may become a thing of the past soon anyway. Offering a customizeable experience and limiting the bloat is the way forward for smartphone companies. That said, samsung may be falling behind the curve, especially on the Korean made variants, and the three major Korean telecom companies aren't much better in how they treat rooted devices. A custom rom?! :0h no! It's like you're doing something illegal. (If I'm paying out the a$$ for something, I'll do whatever I please with it.)
