    Try restoring your iPhone but as new,not from a previous backup.

    A-My battery was lasting a long time after I upgraded to 4.3.1
    B- Now it is not
    C- even though it is not lasting as long as it did when I first upgraded to 4.3.1 it is still not as bad as 4.3 was on battery.
    Why don't you do a battery discharge. Take it down to 20% or less and then do a full re-charge. Hopefully this might help.

    For me 4.3.1 is absolutely better than 4.3 but not as good as 4.2x. Hopefully Apple can get this back to where it was soon. Until 4.3 I was able to stream spark radio/tune-in 4-5 hours a day at work plus my normal usage and not have to charge it until I went to bed. Now I can't make is all the way through the day without having to charge it.

    My battery on 4.3.1 was doing TREMENDOUSLY better...til today. I can usually get 2 or 3 days out of a battery charge. And today I literally killed it. I have no idea what I am doing differently.

    I have a first generation iPad. The battery drain much faster after upgrading to IOS 4.3.1, about 1% per hour in sleep mode. I did not noticed this problem after upgrading to 4.3. A friend's iPad2 with IOS 4.3.1 still has the same battery percentage after 8 hour in sleep mode. Does someone have a similar experience?

    If your usage and standby time are increasing at the same rate, that usually means that there is an app/apps that isn't "closing properly" and continuously active in background.

    Solution: Double-click your home button and "close" your running apps/all apps on "multi-task" dock (hold an app until it starts to wiggle and click the red "-") and you should see the usage and standby time back to normal / increasing at different rates.

    I agree... I had a similar issue. Being a former user/abuser from the BB World, I automatically close out my apps. It is a habit I am trying to break. Might have to go to some kind of re-hab to get through this. LOL

    So after a day spent with 4.3.1 with the redsn0w jb I've found that my battery life is much better than what it was with 4.2.1 jailbroken with greenpois0n. At the moment my battery stats are as follow:
    Usage: 7hrs 10mins
    Standby: 14 hrs 29 mins
    Battery life left: 12%
    Been using google maps and streaming music through Bluetooth as well as calls, texts and what's app

    Oh I forgot to mention that it's been on 3G all day with Bluetooth and location services running.

    Is that what most of you get?

    I found a solution for the battery drain problem: restore to the factory setting.
    To my surprise, the version of IOS after rolling back is till 4.3.1. So I reinstall the apps and the battery time becomes normal, about 1% lower after 8 hours in sleep mode. :-)
    I hope it will works for the others too.
