    I'm having a really bad battery drain ever since I updated to 4.4.3. When I check what is eating battery life, I find that email is taking 88%, whilst I'm not doing anything new or special.

    Is anyone else having a similar experience? What should I do to fix this?

    Try eliminating the account, reboot and set it up again. I remember having a similar issue once

    Thanks for your help.

    I followed the general advice to delete cache, and this appears to be working. Battery depletion levels are back to what they used to be.

    Been having similar battery drain issues for some time. Looking at Settings -> Battery showed Google+ to be a major culprit.

    I have a rooted nexus 4 running stock 4.4.4
    I used Titanium Backup to 'Freeze' Google+ to prevent it from running.
    I also run DS Battery Saver in a pretty aggressive mode.

    Hey presto, between 7:30 am and 5:30 pm the battery has dropped < 15%

    May work for you...

    Use Gmail and Google+, even automatic backup of media to G+ photos, all the time on 4.4.4, never had any battery drain issues... In fact, I have the best battery life I have had since 4.2, did you find out exactly what was causing the issue or did you just "eliminate" it?

    I'm seeing a lot more drain, too. On 4.4.4.

    OP: Could you elaborate on what you did to delete the cache?

    I don't see the means any longer in 4.4.4 to sign in/out of Google Account. Where is it gone?
