    Tricia is correct! It looks like your WiFi is always on. I had this problem no matter if I had everything off. My suggestion at a minimum is do 2 Factory Data Rest (FDR) and a battery calibration. A battery cal is done by letting battery run to battery low warning level..turn off phone and charge fully while off to 100%. Then turn on phone and repeat the process a second time. After the 2nd cycle you can charge and use phone as normal. No need to always charge phone while off...that spike leads me to believe your battery meter is off.

    If you are still getting WiFi being on, my second suggestion would be to reflash, JB.

If you are not actually using wifi, but the phone thinks you are, that will sap your battery.
    I have had wifi on and been using it most of the time. I'm on a college campus, so I almost always have access to wifi. It must have just disconnected for a second when I took that screenshot. I'll probably try resetting it.

    I'd test it out..shut it all off and see if it still stays on. Do a battery calibration and set up smart actions to turn off WiFi and data when your screen is off and phone isnt moving.

    Have you FDR your phone? The reason why I ask is because something during the update maybe causing your battery drain. If you don't want to FDR, slowly uninstall apps you don't use one at a time and see how the phone responds when that apps isn't on your phone. It may not be a downloaded app and could be a system app..but if that is the case, then an FDR (Id do 2) would be the best thing to do..

    As mentioned earlier I would also check the Google Now settings and disable any options you don't want to use. Google Now was one of the biggest additions to JB and as I recall when I first took the update there were 4-5 cards turned on (traffic, weather, sports, etc). These all update in the background and are going to use juice. Don't know how they show up on GSAM, however.

    So if you turn off wifi and data when the screen is off what is the point? Not being snarky just curious what kind of battery life are you looking for? The biggest drain for me is data so when I am on wifi I turn off my data. Also i dont think Google Now is that bad on battery. I have used my phone moderately today and I am at 41%. I have had battery issues before but it was some app causing the issues. I am just wondering how long you want to go before having to charge?

    I had the same giant drop off of battery life today. So I downloaded that battery app that someone recommended. I'll post the screenshots of what it said.

    I received a replacement today and after checking and making sure everything worked on it I went and ran some errands. I noticed when I got back that it had a drop from 63-42%. This is one of the reasons I got a replacement! Im going to do a meter calibration tonight and tomorrow night and see if I can get it straightened out. This sudden battery drop seems to be a problem with the update. I can see having 1 phone but 2 phones doing it seems odd.

    My other razr thats getting sent back was very well taken care of. I did meter calibrations once a month and on ics the battery seemed to last forever. I couldnt get the meter calibrated these past few days . I noticed when it was charging with the power off it would charge to 80% then skip right to 100%. With the power on it would do the same thing.

    I turned my replacement off at about 30% tonight and it charged normally to 100, so im hoping this one will get a good drain tomorrow! Sorry about being long winded im reallygetting frustrated with jelly bean.

    You should wait till at least the low battery warning at 14% to shut phone off and charge to 100%.lately I've been shutting down at 1% and charging while off to full capacity.

    Good catch. I just looked at mine and that is not an included process. Appears your phone has been awake for half the time it has been off the charger.
