Question [Q] Battery Life

I've noticed that when using wifi the battery can last for ages, but once I move over to 3G the battery drains a lot quicker with 'Google Play Services' showing as the main culprit.

Does anyone know why this is (i noticed this on the Nexus 4 as well)

I am running stock LG 10a software (due apps I use I can't root the phone)

Had this issue too with my Galaxy S3. It went away when I got rid of Google Now and disabled Location History and Location Reporting. Also try clearing cache/data for Google Play Services.
