iPhone 5 battery problems


[link to this post]
 
Had this initially, within a few hours, down to 40% after non use.

Did a clean restore with no backup and it got to 80% after about 8 hours use.

Completely drained last night then charged again overnight, today, lost 1% after 8 hours of non use.

Never believed in this concept of battery conditioning before but by god it made a difference.

Did you restart?

Location Services and Notifications can get to be battery hogs is left unattended.

Initially I set up as a backup from the 4S which was six months old, bad battery.

Then a complete restore as new, better but not great.

The drain and recharge has made a phenomenal difference.

Did that a few times and no difference.

Not done a DFU yet, but, hopefully not needing to.

I've had it turned off since day one. The conditioning did the trick for me.
