There's something not quite right here:
Battery life better than CM7.1 without 4G....
Isn't that because you are using 3G?
Or not using your Camera? (which on my Captivate turns the brightness of the screen all the way up)

And THAT is no joke. You kick that transceiver set on and you can feel the phone get warmer. That WiMAX radio unit sucks on the battery like it has a straw regardless of the ROM. I don't turn that puppy on until it has a power source other than the bloody battery.
I usually only ever use 3G. I live right between two clearwire towers so I usually can't pull it unless I travel couple miles east or west, therefore 4G is usually switched off. I don't use the camera very much at all so doesn't come into play with battery life. WHEN i do use my 4G though (I do go into both cities for work) It doesn't get warm for me when I turn 4G on. I was just using 4G this AM and it wasn't getting warm. It does use it just as fast as the 3G yes, also usually use it while plugged into a power source like my truck.
I should point out that I did restore back to CM7.1 due to stability issues of ICS atm and the lack of the camera (for when I DO want to use it) So of course I don't know how ICS will be on 4G yet, so that battery difference I mentioned was just using 3G on both roms.
