My first smartphone was a Droid 1. Then I found the Nexus... Galaxy Nexus LTE unlocked & rooted...
AOKP JB build ROM, IMO JB exp Kernel,
Root Apps - Titanium Backup, Root Explorer, SetCPU, ROM Toolbox, Rom Mangler/ClockworkMod, CWMR Touch, Lightflow, SD Maid, Nova Launcher
Most apps and widgets should be set to pull data only when you ask for it rather than having it push data at set intervals. The constant communication between your phone and the app will cause a huge drain.

Together is where I want to be...
https://market.android.com/details?id=com.gsamlabs.bbm or [APP] [10 Feb. - V1.6.1] BetterBatteryStats adds battery history back to Android - xda-developers <-- try one of those. Those apps can be pretty helpful in tracking down the problem apps. Figure out which apps are power hungry, then try and figure out why, or get rid of the apps if you can live without them.
Just wanted to report in...I did a battery drain to 0% while I slept. Took an hour to charge up to 53% then I charged the rest at work. I'm now at 73% @ 9 hours in. 4G has been on but I shut off data sync since my reception at work is terrible unless I go outside.
I'll download the app you mentioned.

My Nexus has always been pretty good on battery life, but in the last week it started dying quickly very quickly. I checked what was using the battery so much and found that it was the exchange app pinging the mail servers constantly for my hotmail account and my Microsoft server email account. My phone showed that the exchange app was using 50% of the battery. I found several people on the web with the same problem and they said delete and reinstall the mail accounts. I did that and it fixed the problem. Now the exchange app is using only 2 to 4 percent again.
