We finally get our first good look at the 4S's highly-acclaimed battery.

Look closely... closer... there it is: an extra .05 WHrs in the battery over the iPhone 4!

You probably want to know if you can use this battery in your iPhone 4. Sadly, it appears that the connectors are different shapes, so we'd have to say that it's not likely.

The iPhone 4S boasts a continuous talk time of 8 hrs on 3G, up to 14 hrs on 2G (GSM network) and up to 200 hrs on standby.

Comparing these times to those of the iPhone 4, the iPhone 4S offers an extra hour of talk time on the 3G network, the same amount of talk time on the 2G network, and 100 hours less standby time.

Taking into account the upgrade in hardware that comes with the 4S, though, the power consumption seems rather efficient.
