    Perhaps you can give us some more details. Are you on the Dev Preview? Did your battery problems happen right after installing the Dev Preview?

    Back in January, our friends here at WPCentral wrote an excellent article with battery saving tips for times like this: 17 tips to extend battery life on Windows Phone 8 | Windows Phone Central

    But if your battery isn't even lasting half a day, you probably have a deeper underlying issue going on with your device. I would spend some time going over everything, and consider the possibility of applications or services running unwanted in the background. If you end up at your wits end, it might be time to go ahead and factory reset your device. Something else to consider, and hopefully this isn't the case, is that your battery might simply be crapping out on you. They do go bad, and can only be charged a certain amount of times before they lose their energy.

    Anyhoo, I hope you can fix your problem. Report back in later and let us know how you're doing. Your experience may be able to help someone in the future who is having the same problem.

    Good luck!

    Thanks, I'll look in to this.

    I just got my phone a couple weeks ago and installed WP DP 8.1 with the latest updates. I think I noticed significant reduction after the 8.1 Update 1 "update".

    Yes there battery has degraded after 8.1 update 1 but it would improve after the cyan update (atleast that's the expectation)

    My list of steps to correct battery problems:

    1. Reboot.
    2. If not better, soft reset, maybe a few times.
    3. If not better, go into Battery Saver, Usage, and see if it's one or a few apps. Uninstall/reinstall may fix. Also, check what you're allowing to run in background, check your settings and turn off background things you don't need, uninstall apps you don't use, etc.
    4. If not better, hard reset with restore.
    5. If not better, hard reset with setup from scratch.
    6. If not better, Nokia Recovery Tool to go back to 8.0 and start over.
    7. If not better, might be a hardware issue.
