    25% of my battery is going to Bluetooth but I do not use Bluetooth.
    What am I missing?

    Turn it off. If you have it on but aren't using it, it will keep scanning for devices to pair with.

    Yup, definitely keep bluetooth off when not using it. It will really chew on your battery.

    Bluetooth has its places but definitely listen to everyone about keeping it turned off. Its an amazing technology but it is definitely a battery hog. Hopefully the new Bluetooth 3.0 will change all of this as it is suppose to be far better with battery life.
