Question Sudden large battery drain

I've been using my S4 a week and a half, and I've loved it, and been pleasantly surprised with it's battery life. However, yesterday and today the life took a sharp turn for the worse, and drained to half battery without any use by the middle of the day. I use GSAM, but the logs are gibberish to me, so I was wondering if anyone here could tell me what's going on. Yesterday, the Android OS Kernel was the main culprit, today the Bluetooth Share is.

I was going to post them as plain text, but they're pretty long, so I'll attach them. If someone wants me to post them plainly, let me know. Thanks in advance for your help!

Same thing happened to me. So I powered off the phone at bedtime. In the morning when I powered on, a few updates appeared which fixed the issue.

Power off the phone every few days and see if this helps.
