Is there any way to disable it or turn it down?

I was also hit by this Google Play Services battery drain - turning off Location services has completely eradicated the problem. The location settings even showed high battery usage from Google Play services. Yesterday it was using 60%+ of my battery.


Today, Google Play services doesn't even appear in my battery usage and I have a noticeable improvement in battery.
