    Download betterbatterystats or gsam battery monitor. It'll let you know what is causing the drain

    You have a background app that is running and stopping it from shutting down properly thus draining the battery. It could be the magazine app or the book app, maps, currents, etc. My Kindle Fire just did the same thing.

    Pull the back off (just slide your finger nail around the edge and it comes right off) and check the connection from the battery to the mobo it has been known to come loose easily, and make it seem like the battery is dying for no reason.
    No idea what the other guy means don't pull the battery out it is glued in there and that would void the warranty
