    Not quite. Only thing that worked was volume down/power combo. I'll post results tomorrow. Short version: 7h15m = 8% battery consumption. Factory reset worked.

    I'm not on the newest JB, I'm still on the X-Mas leak. But since then, I've noticed a major decrease in battery life on my Maxx. I've seen people say their battery is better, some say it's worse. I guess I'm one of the unlucky ones.

    Something I also noticed, if anybody has an explanation- I stopped using the stock homescreen. I'm currently using GO Launcher and this has increased my battery life significantly. An average day I would probably get 8 hours of moderate use on the stock homescreen. I changed to GO Launcher and noticed I can roughly pull 16 hours now with the same moderate use. Anybody know why? (No widgets were used on both)

    I too did a cache partition wipe last night as my nemesis is system wakelock keeping the phone awake almost all the time. That dropped to 3 percent today which is way way down from the last two days. Battery is almost back to normal now...at 70% with 16 hours and 11 minutes on it. That included a 40 minute phone call and almost 2.5 hours of screen time. I switch to 3G at work as there is marginal 4G in the old building I work in and no wifi at all.

    Interesting! I've only used the stock home launcher since updated to OTA jb. I did use go before but I hated the constant reminder of trying to use or download or use one of there go products. It was like an annoying telemarketer...has that changed?

    Fix that restored my battery life

    For everyone having issues with battery life, after doing some research, I found that in my case the tilt scroll in chrome was keeping my device awake. Since I'm not a fan of chrome on the phone (cuz it is so slow) I disabled it completely. But for those who like using chrome, try disabling tilt scroll in chrome's labs sub setting. Also if you can, run down the battery then charge it up over night OFF and then wipe the cache in the morning before unplugging. (See the sticky on wiping cache).

    I hope this helps you guys get your awesome battery life!

    Could be that not all batteries are equal>have same shelf life so to speak. I never ever had to fiddle around when on ICS. With moderate usage, I could easily go 48 hours without charging.

    Cool suggestion. Part of the problem with these GSam screen shots is that we are not all playing on the same field measuring the same things. You got great life but without really taxing the device. My screen shot coming up will reflect the same relative inactivity.

    I disabled the tilt scroll. However, I do not have the option to disable Chrome. I am running a stock device. But we'll see how this helps! Thank you for the tip.
