    Since a recent skype update my battery is draining much faster. Checked my battery usage and it is skype that is responsible for some 50% of my battery usage. Will google it later but just wondered if anyone else is affected. I didn't use skype during this 50% battery usage.

    If it helps, whenever I have unexplained battery drain I go into the settings and uninstall Google Play Services (NOTE not to be confused with Google Play Store), then reinstall it...

    Usually does the trick for me..
