    Default Battery Life

    Hi there,
    I know there're tons of other topics about battery life, but my question is quite different.
    I have rooted SGS3 running CM 10.2 Android 4.3 it runs great, but feels like it drains battery more. And yes it FEELS like it. The graph shows somewhat around 15-20 hours depending on using from 100 to 5%. I know it's quite decent, but at the end of the day I'm getting left with like 5% so I charge it, then it's full and during night it eats up 5-15% for whatever reason.
    Graph shows that Google Services eats up like more than 50% of battery (which I've never had so). Most of the time the screen was the first one to eat up like 30% of battery but now this one.

    So could anyone give me a tip what Google Services are and why they're eating up so much juice.

    This is the status by now, screenshot has just been taken

    And this is what I had before rooting

    Something is amiss with Google Services. It shouldn't ever be higher than screen. Screen should always be at the top of that if you're using your phone even semi-consistantly during the day, as shown in your latter image. Google Services is basically anything gapps use, like Now, play store auto update checks etc. I'd also check your sync settings. If you're syncing gmail and stuff every 15 minutes, it's going to pull battery like crazy. If that all looks good, go into Google Maps. There's a setting for "Google Location Settings", turn off "Location Reporting" and see if that fixes it.

    I can't seem to find where can I find the how often it's updating. With official software there was no problem, but on CM 10.2 I can't seem to understand where it is. Only thing I can find is that it's syncing and only thorough Settings -> Accounts -> Google

    That's where the setting should be. Try the maps thing.

    That's no good. Usually it is maps causing the issue. Can you shoot me a screen of your app memory usage?

    Sure, I wanted to send it, but forgot. Actually I've recharged just now. Hopefully that doesn't make a difference.

    That looks like it's from the battery screen. Go to the Apps screen and flick over to the running section. Screenshot that and post, please.

    View the processes and services for Google Services and see why it's using the most memory. Probably a direct relation to the battery issue.

    His issue isn't hardware related. It's software.
