It definitely is highly dependent on the strength of both your WiFi and cellular signals as well as how much your display is on and how much of the time your phone (CPU) is on. GPS on is not so much of a big consumer unless you're using navigation. Bluetooth typically isn't a big energy consumer either. I get about the same amount time for the display being on, sometimes more.

I have a question regarding these batteries. Using a fully charged battery, do you guys see batt% at 100% for first couple of hours and then once it starts dropping, it decreases quicker. I am guessing that's because of higher capacity than stock battery and some calibration is needed.

What app or method do yo use to calibration? Will it also fix the batt%?

Yeah, I've had that sudden drop happen to me. When it does I take that as a cue to fully charge and discharge my battery (with fast boot disabled).

I haven't bothered to calibrate my battery. Really that is a misnomer, you're really calibrating the operating system since the percentage available is based on the voltage reading from the battery.

I use Battery Monitor Widget to monitor the battery stats. If you have a rooted phone then wipe the battery stats.

After reading other comments about the excellent customer service at laptopmate, i thought i would see if they would do anything with my faulty battery which is out if the warranty period.

All the comments are spot on. Their service is excellent and they are sending out a replacement to me without me even suggesting it. I just asked if there was anything that I could do to repair the faulty battery.

So now i will reccomend them 100% and hope that the replacement doesn't become faulty too!
