    The other day my battery started dropping very quickly. Noticed it went from 40-11% in about an hour without any use. I was just checking emails like normal. Phone was also pretty hot. Trying to figure out what was going on I just did a hard restart then plugged into the charger. After the restart it cooled down pretty quick. While still on the charger I checked the power use app which told me Lookout consumed 77% of the power since my last charge.
    Went to the lookout app and found an update occurred at the same time the battery drained.
    Changed my updates to happen in the middle of the night while on the charger.

    I ran into this same type problem about 3 weeks ago. I checked and the internet usage on mine was like 80% of the battery usage. After digging around I found an app that I had started, can't remember what it was, for some unknown reason was using the internet connection constantly. I rebooted my phone and checked and it had stopped. But mine was running hot and the battery was going down at an incredible rate like yours. I don't think the app was Lookout, but I do run Lookout on my phone.
