You probably have a rouge app. Download "Where's my Droid power" and it will tell you which app is keeping the phone awake and close it.

The native ICS app has some battery statistics. Go to settings-battery and it gives you some indication of what is being used.

Mine almost exclusively says most is from screen.

You might consider some application killing software through the play store.

Don't use those, please.
It ruins the stability of said apps.

And...
I find the most useful feature of the stock android battery stats to be the graph.
Settings>battery>click the graph.

If you're "Screen On" and "Awake" bars are close to being the same...it's good.
If awake is on really frequently with your screen off...it's bad.
Keep in mind that playing music and making phone calls will keep your phone awake with the screen off. That's fine.

I couldn't agree more on the battery and data usage graphs.

Thanks for the tip on app killing software, it seems all kinda of places have recommended them even though I never used one yet.

Some quick things that could save you some battery:

- dissable 4g when you are not using it if you have a gsm hit 2g networks only..

- Turn bluetooth and GPS on when you need them power them off when you are not using them. there's a nice widget you can add to your homescren to keep those settings in check.

- if you are a chatter. install chat apps that use Push. a nice example:
a) msn, facebook chat: Trillian


My phone lasts for something like 20 hours (on normal use) but I recharge it every night.. (when I go to sleep I plug it in). If you are a heavy user you can consider buying a better battery, or keeping a small solar powered powerbank in your bag..

Could you please explain "normal use" to me, because 20 hours battery life is something I haven't seen since a blackberry.
