that could be due to your bad signal. You might wanna look into another modem (unless you took that screenshot somewhere you don't really have signal).

You could download BetterBatteryStats and monitor a full charge. That would give you a better idea of what is draining your battery.

Definitely use better battery stats to monitor your wakelocks. But on that battery screen tap on Android System and it'll tell you what processes have been running.

Oh, and if youve updated to kk using the ota, you cannot use any other modems unfortunately. You'll get no signal at all.
