aokp build 31 + semaphore 1.0 (smartassv2 + sio) lost about 1% in 2 hours of idle..
with very light usage (7 minutes of calls and a hour of 3g) i've got 71% after a day(22 hours) of i think it is equal to gingerbread roms

NEW ICS 4.0.4 EXTRAordinary_4.0.4_beta with default kernel (Glitch B6)

I am proud to say that the battery is really good. My phone usually was out of juice by 5 pm (games, movies, etc). Now it's about 50%!

If the display is off and DIDLE is active, it could be that you come through 3 days or more, but if you only turn it on for checking Mails or something else the battery is sinking so that you can see it.
I'm with 10% at evening with 1500 mah original SAMSUNG battery if I charged it over the last night with normal usage.
ROM etc. in signature.

You should specify your usage. It's almost impossible to say if it's good or bad without the details.

If you could push the battery for 2.5 days(60 hours +/-) ROM/kernel not important, I guess your usage isn't very high.
I have no problem getting 2 days with my low usage on Slim ICS and Semaphore.
But I charge it full every night so I can avoid getting a useless phone the next day.
I can go 18 hours with heavy usage. 4 hours screen, game, surfing, other stuff and a lot of listening to music. I try to dim the screen and use black themes as much as I can.
