    Try clearing data and cache then uninstall updates for Google maps. Also double check your location settings. A recent maps update messed it up for a bunch of people.

    You can let maps update, it seems to go ok the second time.

    Hey,
    I recently had this very same issue. I posted on this forum, check out the responses:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/ga...battery-draining-exceptionally-fast-rate.html

    Also note:
    - make sure you've updated all your apps; there could be a random app that needs a critical update to fix an issue
    - install GSam Battery Monitor app -- I am convinced this is how I finally resolved my issue

    Good luck!

    I tried bringing it with me today, it didn't drain the battery that fast as it was inside the locker. What;s inside my locker that it drained it that fast? Even if I turned off the Wifi and deleted the Google maps. Last night I charged it to 100% before I wen to sleep, when I woke up it's already 70%. Is this normal?

    What are your top users under Settings -> Battery? A bad/weak signal in the locker and/or your house could cause battery drain.

    As suggested above, go to the Play Store and get a free app called GSAM battery monitor. It'll help find the energy vampire.

    the problem with the locker is, its likely making your signal weak or limited, so the phone is constantly trying to keep or find signal which uses a lot of battery.

    there is obviously some other issue also, follow the previous suggestions to look into that.
