This is like getting your chemistry advice from a superman comic book. It's so poorly informed it almost gave me a brain Anurism.
The iPhone 5 battery life is the same or better than the iPhone 4S with no perceptable difference. Stop worrying.
IPS screens with a built in touch layer like Apple's screen require less power (though bigger screens require more power so this may be a draw or take slightly more power), faster porcessors require less power and the 4G LTE hybrid chip that Apple developed as a first uses the same amount of power as a regular 4G chip which is why the iPhone 5 has so much more battery life when using LTE than the Galaxy S3 for example. The iPhone 5 also has a bigger battery.
If you're really really worried about battery life get a battery case and have a phone that has as much battery life as you want.

The same or better battery? That appears to be very debatable, though from reading these posts it appears to be hard to say if it lasts longer or not - I believe it may just last longer but I won't find out for myself until I upgrade. How would it appear that I am worrying? It's just a phone.
Apples hybrid 4G chip uses same amount of power as a separate 4G chip? You have the right idea but you did word it a bit wrong.
The iPhones 5 may have a bigger battery but the increased screen size is enough to diminish the improved battery life, but I can imagine the 5 having a better standby.

I actually like my battery life now. At first I was only getting 3-4 hours of usage time but once I let the battery settle, it's been great. I bought the mophie battery case for my overnight shift but since battery life has gotten better for me, I barely use it now. Here's what I got so far

Heavy use gets me through a full day from 7am to 11pm, while lighter use can easily go two days. This is on LTE.
