I wanted to chime in a out my experience with Carbon ROM 1.8. I should start by saying that I really enjoyed Carbon. Both 3G and 4G work flawlessly, as does the camera. If I was to say battery life was as great as its countless customization options and stability I would stretching the truth. Please note that I only used Carbon ROM for approximately 1 week and as such, I don't for one second believe I spent sufficient time with Carbon to say unequivocally one way or the other. However, it's hard for me to fathom how any ROM that offers such immense versatility would not take a slightly greater hit to battery life. If you want to quench your thirst for the freedom to adjust just about every detail imaginable, Carbon ROM is the Big Gulp. Drink up!
