Same issue here - applied Towelroot on an HTC One M8 (Verizon), root did not work, but battery drains considerably faster now (would estimate about 30% faster drain than before).
There is definitely something going on with the towelroot apk, I have not installed anything else.

So I have to completely setup my phone again? I guess that's the price for being brave and trying new things

Something's running rogue and keeping your CPU running high, which probably accounts for the heat. A hot phone wastes more energy, so you're getting hit twice. Did you try installing wakelock detector to hunt down the issue?

Haven't noticed any lag because of towel root. However installing xposed and xprivacy gave me unbearable lag. I had to Uninstall them and the phone went back to being smooth.

Resetting to factory settings after towel root RETAINS root.

Or, since you are rooted, use an app lie Tibu to backup apps and data, and restore it after reset. Root survives factory reset.

I am not rooted - towelroot doesn't seem to work on the HTC One M8 (Verizon).

I did a factory reset, but the battery still drains like a jug of beer on a summer day... down to 15% after 6 hours

Looked at wakelock detector, but that only runs on rooted KitKat phones. As mentioned before, Towelroot did not work on my HTC One M8...
