    My 1520 suddenly started to drain out it battery this evening (second day I had it). It went down 50% just kept in my bag and was really hot when I took it out. Anyone else have this issue? I switched off all "background" running apps, except Whatsapp so wondering why this is even happening.

    Well, for the past two days I have been experiencing faster battery drain but not as excessive. I thought it might be some apps so I turned off some background processes but that's not it. I'm still getting a full days use out of it, but where I used to go to bed with 30-40% battery left, I am now going to bed with 10-15% under same usage.

    What system apps or regular apps have you updated/installed since? I'm thinking it might have been Extras+Info. I know I also updated LinkedIn and a couple of others that I cant remember, but the background processes have remained the same.

    I still get over 15 hours of normal to heavy use on my Lumia 1520 but yes there is an app or 2 who drinks the battery, I use Nokia mixradio 3 to 4 hours a day, weave newsreader beta alot daily, vimeo, WP central, 6tag, Facebook beta, those are my most used apps daily.

    You've got a thirsty app running in the background it sounds like.

    :.it was a rogue app ...deleting it solved the problem for me

    A good way to keep an eye on things is to ensure that your standby drain is near zero

    My phone seems to do it now and then, but rebooting usually stops it, my 920 did the same thing

    I am also facing severe battery drain with my Lumia 1520.
    I hardly get more than 10 hours battery life with moderate use. With heavy use like playing music and using Here Drive navigation , its even lesser.
    Even standby battery drain is pretty high.

    Could anyone list out a few apps that may be causing this??

    Yes. Yesterday I downloaded two apps: lomogram and lazylens. Today I noticed that battery drains about 10% in 45 minutes. After uninstalling those everything's fine.

    WhatsApp is a horrible thing for the battery, it drains almost 1% minute. :/

    Anyway, these drain-issues occurs on every WP8 device.. A shame they haven't fixed it yet

    Fully charge the phone, then use phone phone until it dies, and don't recharge at all during this period, then charge again to 100%

    I have battery drain issue as well.
    During the night, I checked my battery. It was 40% before I went to take a sleep. Plus, I turned it off and on just to ensure battery shows real status.
    However, 7 hours later, when I woke up - phone was dead, battery went down to 0!
    It happens to me several times and I am not sure what does cause this to happen.
    I get more than two days of regular use with my phone, but these situations are really irritating. I tried with factory reset too.
    I use WP 8.1 and I know it is still in beta, but, anyhow, this is unacceptable.

    In 1998 that was good for the battery itself, in 2014 it's good for calibrating the OS, but it hurts the battery so don't do it more than once a month or less. Microsoft thinks you should do it (run it below 10%) at least once a month with the Surface.

    There's an app called "Battery Performance" in the WP Store that I found very helpful in getting a handle on battery issues. I had to exchange my 1520 for a new one, because there seemed to be no way around the issue of having it hang on the "battery charging" setting after I'd taken it off the charger. The issue was not present (knock-on-wood) in the new model and battery life has been very good.

    I have seen a puzzling divergence in the time it takes different charges to charge the 1520. To a greater degree, I think, than with my other devices. If your house is like mine, people are constantly poaching each other's chargers so you quickly lose track of where the original manufactures micro usb cable got to, assuming you can hold onto your Nokia outlet plug. So I'm wondering if the 1520 doesn't require a higher capacity/quality usb cable? I certainly saw this in the car as well, where, when I was using Scout GPS for a long ride, the battery wound down even on the charger. And that doesn't happen with higher end car chargers.

    I'm experiencing the same thing with my Lumia 920, only started happening two days ago.

    I go to bed with around 60-70% and wake up to a dead phone. I look at the battery log on the "Battery Performance" app and it shows that the phone suddenly drains 50% of the battery within half hour half way through the night...I have not installed any new apps or changed any of my settings.

    I've experienced this the last two nights too, exactly as you described. Am running the updated 8.1 preview on my 1520. Nothing has changed, no new apps. I've disabled Cortana, will see if that makes any difference tonight.

    I am running the updated 8.1 preview as well. I didn't take the chance last night so I left my phone charging overnight. Let me know how it turned out for you last night.

    What is your hardware revision number? I had battery drain + overheating issues my new L1520 hardware rev. number 4 on both wp 8 and 8.1. I had to request a replacement because the camera had a defective mark on pics and videos. The replacement I got is hardware rev. number 5 and it has no battery drain and overheating issues.

    My 1520 got extremely hot this morning from just sitting on my desk. Check the battery and found out it went from 90%-45% in 2 hours.
    I've had this problem several times already (3-4) after installing the Wp8.1.
    Checked Battery Sense and I don't think I find the draining battery app since It shows Internet Explorer as the main battery eater, when I didn't leave any app open 2 hours prior to the overheating.

    Turning it off and turn it back on solve the problem. But I'm worry that this overheating problem might come back.
    I did Factory Reset once when I updated to 8.1. Not sure what causing the problem. Could be some rouge apps or the OS.

    Massive battery yet a massive screen that eats it up like hot cakes. I guess we have to live with it unless official 8.1 fixes something.
