Default Battery Usage Help

First off, my battery seems to be lasting a decent amount of time and the phone is working well, but, in the past, the display has always been the main culprit in battery consumption. I had loaded GSam a while back and it got reinstalled after my ICS Update and subsequent FDR. I have been watching battery stats recently and the percentage consumption seems off to me. I have attached a couple of screen shots for you to have a look at. If you have any suggestions, let them fly.

When reading percentages for battery apps or for the stock battery usage the percentages are based on the amount of battery used. Say that you have 50 percent left in your battery and your battery app shows that your screen has used 75 percent. That means the screen used 75 percent of the 50 percent not 75 percent of the full battery. Does that make sense?

For those of you looking for that app here it is. Gsam

I understand how the percentages work. If I had only used 1% of the battery, 75% of it would still be app usage (maybe,) anyway I understand how it is reported. My issue is that I have never (before ICS seen) app usage that high. Specifically, why would the kernel percentage be so high?

The only reason I can see that the kernel is so high because it contains your radio's which are constantly being used.

Thanks. I was hoping someone would tell me that my Giggy-Wig was turned on and I probably didn't need it on and I could turn it off and make my battery life better.
