    The last 2 days my phone won't last 6 hours before dead. I installed nothing new that I am aware of in the last week or so. It is rooted running Lightning Launcher for about the last 8 months or so without issue. I took a screen shot of my battery screen and WOW...Media is burning up my phone. How do I figure out WHAT media it is? I stream Google Music a lot in the car so I do use it quite a bit. However, today my phone died in 6 hours while idle and not streaming anything. Something is running that I do not know about.

    Use GSam Battery Monitor. Let your phone go for a cycle then it will tell you where your battery is being used and which apps are the battery hogs.
