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?

Worse case scenario is a factor reset, usually does the trick.

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.

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.
