    My battery is draining ridiculously fast- literally like seven tonnes faster than stock and I believe Google now is the culprit.it's constantly checking my location and performing calculations. In gsam, it says that in the past 13 mins- Google services woke up my device 47 times! And GOOGLE MAPS woke her up over 20 times! Google is killing my battery. I love Google NOW, but it needs to stop doing so much stuff in the background.. I had to swap out my battery like 3 times today with light usage compared to my usual whole day of heavy use and one battery... are you in the same boat as me?

    No problems here. Switched to a JB ROM a couple of weeks ago and about the same battery life as always.

    Maybe turn off Google Now and see if it helps.

    You can go in the battery saver options an say to dissable "background data". I don't have JB yet, but now I am concerned.
