    Everything has been great until the last few days.

    Have been getting crazy battery usage by seemingly random services.

    I havn't even opened maps. Here is a sample of my last couple of days.

    Any suggestions?

    If you're at 8 or 9 hours and still have 45% left on a single charge you're phone is doing extremely good. You have nothing to worry about. I noticed Maps was using lots of juice, turn off your GPS when not using navigation.

    Turn off "Use wireless networks" under Location services. Otherwise, Google's map service will constantly scan wireless networks to determine your location and eat up your battery.

    1) Go to Settings > Location services and uncheck "Use wireless networks". Your battery drain might be Google services trying to continuously find your location.

    2) Make sure Latitude is turned off by going into Maps > Settings > Location Settings and make sure Location Reporting is set to "Do not update my location" and Enable location sharing, Enable location history, and Automatic check-ins are all unchecked.
