The battery tips for the 9900 would mirror that of any other models... the Li-Ion battery should server you well over a couple of days without charging under moderate usage. I've seen a number of users reporting good battery life on this device, and only a few reporting less than optimum battery life.
You might gain some insight in this blog post.
Here are some good charging tips, please read and you'll see that many of them will apply to you.

I have horrible battery life with mine as well, finding it dead within 7-9 hours. I love the phone otherwise and all other features of it. from what i've been reading around the various forums, it seems this shallow battery life isn't common among everyone but a select group that is having the issue while everyone else is experiencing great battery life.
is it possible the issue could be caused by bad batches of batteries supplied to a group of the phones? it seems extremely odd to me that it would be the 2 extremes, all stories I've seen are either great battery life (2 days straight) or extremely bad (like my case, 6 hours)

I think that everybody hopes a solution for battery short life problem. I bought the BB9900 4 days ago and I have the same problem.
I always considered that the best attribute of BlackBerry smatphones was their long life battery. It is a big RIM's failure. I hope they will find an OS / firmware solution, or also, they suggest a new high capacity battery.
