The app itseld doesn't drain the battery that bad... I had my Pixi Plus from 7AM till 11PM the whole day with MojoWhatsup running in the background checking every 15 minutes for new messages and my battery is about 70% now. The screen was off nearly all the time, but I also had Twitter and Email running in the background so they were checking too for new messages.
In conclusion I think the app isn't bad for your battery at all. It's just normal that Push notification takes some battery life but things like screen are taking much more energy...
I'd be interested to know what people's battery life is like if you actually use the program to have conversations. If the app is minimised to the dash, it seems pretty efficient like mentioned above, but I've found that having a conversation for 20mins or so seriously drains the battery, but that could be exacerbated by signal strength.
