    Just a possible hint - maybe you've got to the new Store to check new 8.1 apps and downloaded something that causes this?

    Having the same problem...was waiting to test it out & let it optimise over the weekend & if the draining doesn't slow down then am planning on doing a hard reset on monday

    NO wifi, mobile data, already turned off location & all possible background applications..don't see what could be causing the drain.... even when the screen if off most of the time.
    I think my phone has caught ebola (No disrespect meant to the victims )

    Oh no! I was hoping that when Cyan was released in my country installing it would stop the battery drain in my 520 which currently has dev preview update 1 installed, and now you're saying it would cause further battery drain!

    Same problem here with Lumia 520 after updated to windows phone 📱 8.1.
    Battery draining very fast. Almost double Fast when compared to wp 8 version.
    No apps running in the background.
    Battery lasts only for 8 hours.

    Try turning off the Battery Saver. It helps.

    I have done soft reset and problem solved. Try it yourself and check if battery draining slows down before going for hard reset

    But I have noticed that battery consumption on my Lumia 520 is more in WP 8.1 than WP 8

    I never solved that on my Lumia 620, and that included hard resets and updating all the way to wp 8.1 gdr1. Actually, with the update to 8.1 GDR1 the phone got plain unusable with random reboots and extreme unresponsiveness. I eventually had to downgrade to wp 8 GDR3 with Nokia Recovery tool.
