Question [Q] S5 Active Rooted - Major Battery Drain

I rooted my S5 Active yesterday with towelroot.com provided by @geohot. Since rooting I am experiencing a dramatic battery issue where it is draining within 4 hours and even while plugged in. Any thoughts?
Current Device: **Rooted** AT&T Samsung Galaxy S5 Active
Former Devices: AT&T Samsung Galaxy S 4 - Rooted no custom ROM
iPhone 5

Worse case scenario is a factor reset, usually does the trick.
Verizon Galaxy S5 - Rooted!
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 CyanogenMod 11 - Kit Kat
Nexus 10 - ThunderKat
Verizon Galaxy Tab 7.7 - OmniRom 4.4.2

After rooting my S5 I also had a battery drain, but I found that the cause was the updated Amazon Music app. After freezing it with TiBU, everything returned to normal.
Currently using a VZW Samsung Galaxy S5 and a WiFi-Only Xoom (and an employer provided iPad)

how can you find the draining apps? is there a application that finds out your battery consumption?

I found it in the basic Android battery monitor: Settings -> Device -> Battery

It also showed up noticably in Better Battery Stats and Wakelock Detector.
