I used to conserve my G2 battery by connecting to wifi at home and it made a HUGE difference. The GSIII? Not so much...

90% now, as I continue typing this. It appears to melt away by 1% every couple minutes...
The update to Jelly Bean that is coming out next month fixes the battery issues. I have been running one of the leaks and my battery life is much better than is was with ICS.
