How is your Battery Life with iCloud Enabled?

iCloud is a pretty cool idea.  I am sure that Apple has some grand plans for it more then just document/data/music/photo syncing (think TV and Movie streaming on iCloud and being able to watch anything whenever you want to).

Where iCloud is most useful is on mobile devices like the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.   Imagine being able to take a picture and have it instantly on your computer in the office or home.   One concern is how much will this always connected cloud take on your existing battery life.  During beta testing of iOS5, it was noticed that the battery life was reduced when iCloud was enabled and used, which makes sense.  But, will it be worth it?

It will be very interesting to hear from people that enable iCloud and how that impacts their battery life.
