    My battery is no longer anything special. It will be dead mid-afternoon on some days. There are also sudden jumps that I have no idea what might be causing them. Anyone know what could be causing this or ideas on how to fix it?

    There are several long threads about battery life and JB with a lot of good ideas and tips on finding out what is draining it. Check them out. You are not alone in this issue. Check em out...something may help you!

    This is what my battery started doing yesterday. If I was you I would try doing a meter calibration. I went to Verizon today and they are sending me a replacement but I have other issues too.

    If you haven't already, the first thing I would do is an fdr. Then after the fdr I would fdr again to make sure you got everything. This update hasn't been fun.

    Here is mine. I charged mine for like 10 min but I think you guys need to do some optimization like less auto brightness. Turn off auto detect WiFi that is horrible on battery. There is a bunch of other stuff but just go through and turn off anything you don't NEED. I did it and no I get like 10 to 12 hours of battery's when I use to on ICS only get 6 hours. I'm pretty heavy user too..

    First thing I did when I got my maxx last weekend was update to jb and drain battery till it shut off and calibrate it by charging while off. Battery has been awesome as this size of battery should be. Maybe y'all should try to calibrate soon.

    If you don't already use it, GSam battery monitor, free in the app store, will tell you what is using your battery. You may have a misbehaving app that has not been optimized for JB. If it is wake locks keeping your phone awake, there is an app called Wakelock Detector free in the app store also that will tell you what is keeping the phone awake.

    Do any of you have Google Now enabled? Is it constantly refreshing locations or searching for your location?

    Also, I have let my battery go down to 15% to calibrate but I have never let it go down so low the phone has shut off. Always read that letting it kill totally was not a good idea.

    My battery life right now is about back to normal for me. However, last week I was at my wit's end trying to second guess what this phone was going to do. JB is definitely not a ready for prime time update. The half-baked one erroneiously releasted on Christmas Eve (which was pushed to my phone) was more stable than the final build.

    Do you actually have a wifi connection? I see at the top of your screen show "wifi network available". But your wifi line is solid blue all the way across. There have been reported issues of wifi not turning off even after you turn it off. I do not see any icons on your notification bar as to whether you are actually using wifi or a 3/4G signal. If you are not actually using wifi, but the phone thinks you are, that will sap your battery.

    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.

    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.
