    I have a Samsung S3 using Android 4.4.4 with CyanogenMod 11.0.

    Lately I have been having extremely poor battery performance, it charges very slowly from the mains (using a 2A charger), or even doesn't charge at all (e.g. just breaks even) while plugged in to a usb port. Then it drains rapidly once the charger is unplugged.

    Google Play Services is at the very top of the list without exception. Responsible for 80%+ of battery drain. This is with location data turned off.

    Last night I even turned off wifi and mobile data, resetted the battery usage stats, and in the morning my phone was completely out of battery, with Google Play Services responsible for 87% of the drain.

    So, what can I do about this? I assume it's actually an application I have that is using google play services, and not play services itself that is the problem. But how can I even find out? Is there a way to check what apps are using play services, perhaps see a breakdown of some kind?

    Welcome to AC.

    First, check whether it is a third-party app causing the trouble, by booting into Safe Mode.
    Tell us what happens.
