    No details??? What have you done to try to trouble shoot the issue?

    Settings > More tab > Battery.... what is draining your battery... what is high on the list beside "Screen"?

    Its most likely your gps location services. But if you haven't done a factory reset after the update, I'd recommend doing that. Give your phone about a day after doing so to sync up the data from your accounts, then look at your battery life. It should be better.

    My battery life is excepcional, so I've tried everything to see what happens, and just to give you a summary, as soon as I use the Auto Brightness option the battery becomes more like my old S2 battery. It won't last a normal usage day, and with heavy use I need to re-charge it before I left the office to get home.

    With the Auto Brightness Off and just minimal Brightness (Good enough for me been all day at my office, car and home) right now I unplug my phone at 6:00AM and don't reconnect it until bed time, around 11:00PM, most of the time I'm still at 40% by that time, and when I fully use my phone, I still have some charge left, around 10-15% with over 4.5 hours of screen use, and when I let it almost discharge completely, I get a little over 5 hours of screen time. I use it all day to get dozens of emails, I use it to read my magazines with Google Currents and Flipboard, I use Google Maps once a Day with GPS going from Office to Home, and obviously to make a couple of phones and SMS and WhatsApp a day, BUT, when I'm not using maps then I turn off GPS, and the same with Wifi and Bluetooth (Thanks God for the Quick Settings options), plus my Google Maps/Now locations are always off.

    Try downloading Wakelock Detector and give it a couple hours on battery before checking it. You can't determine the usage in the first minute off charge. Give it a couple hours.
    The wakelock detector will show you if your phone is awake or sleeping and will show you what is causing it.

    Screen shot is good, but you really need to run it on battery a LOT longer for it to show up something we might be able to read... say something below 30% or after 16 hrs or so, OR some time just before you plug it in.

    GSam Battery Monitor is good to have too. They give different information and sometimes you need both to really figure out what's going on.

    To give an example of what GSam does, my phone currently reports that "Google Services" has used 23% of my battery so far today. There are no actual apps listed. Not horribly useful. GSam tells me that Minimalistic Text has used 28% and Tasker has used 13%. If I were upset that either of those had used that much (I'm not, those are pretty much the only two apps I've used all day) then I'd know where to look. The one time I did have a problem a single app had used 90% of my battery for the day. It was real easy to tell what the problem was then.

    IWakelock Detector tells me that Google Search (probably Google Now), Facebook and Tasker are the three big culprits when it comes to wake locks. Those all seem normal to me, too. If some app you don't use or care about is keeping your processor awake then you can find it there.

    Let your phone run on battery a couple hours after installing it and then open it up. Go to the top settings and select "Cpu Wakelock" and take a screenshot of the list.

    I have the same problem. Those that have answered, your help is much appreciated, but I have to say you are off target. Here are the symptoms. There was never a battery problem before installing Jelly Bean. Never. After installing Jelly Bean, the battery is drained in about a 1/10 of the time. The battery would remain charged for about 20 hours, it is now dead in two hours. Since the only change was the OS, I do not see the reason to look at other apps. It should be somewhere in Jelly Bean? The hardware remained the same. So, what is draining the battery would not be a screen or app, or anything that was the same before. Also, I originally thought it was just coincidence and my battery was old. But after seeing lots of people complain about this, I realized it was the Jelly Bean update. In addition, the wifi optimizer was added which drains the battery. But, I turned it off. So that is not a solution.

    So, in summation, there are lots of people complaining about the battery drain after uploading Jelly Bean. The only common denominator is the OS. Any suggestions on a solution would be greatly helpful.

    You're making a lot of assumptions here. Instead of assuming that the OS update must be the cause of the battery drain, why not check what's actually using your battery and go from there? Otherwise, you'll be in God disappeared in a puff of logic land.

    Many of us have made some very helpful suggestions... including trying to get some more information on what issues the OP (Original Poster) issues are, but without getting more information other than "I have the same problem" it's a little hard to help.

    So, I would suggest you give us a little more than "I have the same problem" and actually read some of our posts.

    The is issue not with the batter or any App. It is with the OS update.
    I have two phones and they both have the same issue since the update and my 15yr old
    son has the same issue too. So the two phones in position with the same batter
    problem all after the upgrade of the OS.

    It is either an issue with the OS on the older devices or a setting the the OS turned on or off
    and I would hope the Android will help resolve because things were great before the upgrade.

    Also, I noticed that my batter windows shows Android System using 31% and Screen 25% and OS 15%
