    One thing not mentioned is location services. Just like the isue of background app refresh and push LS can be a cause as some apps are just screwy about handling it. I found that turning it off in many apps (Facebook being on) was very effective.

    And those times are on the iPad at least as of 7.1

      Lucas: I will add LS to the post, you’re definitely right that a lot of apps use it too liberally and it can cause major drain. Thanks!

        Another one to experiment with is cell data use. I’ve only ever used my own iPhone and iPad for this but I find that going on the internet via cell data, especially where reception is iffy, my battery drains faster. So I avoid any kind of video or music streaming on cell data double if I’m in a low service area
