And for the lazy users:
I found that using Chrome for Android would, at times, drain my battery in the background substantially, to the point where it would be the first or second highest "reason" listed for battery drain, even when I hadn't opened the app all day.
Thanks to Badass Battery Monitor, I found that Chrome was using the Gyroscope in the background. This doesn't make any sense, so I assume it's a bug.
Here are the steps I used to resolve it:
1. Open up Chrome
2. Go to Settings
3. Select "Developer tools"
4. Uncheck "Enable Tilt Scrolling"
5. Reboot the phone
This seems to have resolved all battery draining issues I had with Chrome. I just wanted to post about it in case anyone else is having the issue, and so that Google is aware there is an issue and can resolve it in the future release.
If I have helped you feel free to hit the "Thanks" button or buy me a beer
