Since pulling it from the charger dock this afternoon, I've had it running for about 7.5 hours with BT and Wi-Fi both on, including a brief reboot to WebOS, and after a combined 2 hours web browsing, 0.5 hours casual gaming, 0.5 hours tweaking the settings, and 4.5 hours of standby, I'm at 75% battery life. I checked the battery meter in WebOS just to be sure and it matches what CM10 is reporting, so it seems to be doing great.
The only significant disappointment, so far, is that the NPR streaming app crashes instantly after launch
EDIT: Add another 0.5 hour of light browsing, and at just over 8 hours I'm about to attempt USB charging overnight...and it's at 69%. Seems like a good performer, overall.

Bingo -- doesn't matter what the source is, including an HP charger. It will report active charging but the battery does not charge, and the battery status indicator in "Settings" will still indicate "discharging".

I pick it up off of the charger and it continues to ping away, still saying it is charging. I have to power it off and back on to get it to stop. I missed taking it off the charger once and it ran overnight like that. It was very hot to the touch the following day and required a restart, but it works fine other than this odd event.
