I had this issue as well but i think I've managed to fix it. Trouble is I can't pinpoint what exactly has done it, as I changed a few things.

There were some reports that the 'raise to speak' Siri function had activated itself and was draining the battery. I went into settings and although this was set to 'off' I toggled it on and then off again and did a hard reset.

I've also turned genius for apps in location settings off, as well as all the other system location settings.

Just for some background when I upgraded I did it via OTA and did not reset all my settings, which some people have advised.

I left my phone overnight last night at 96% battery and in 8 hours it drained 4%.

I'm thinking it has something to do with the raise to speak feature..

Same on my 4s. If I don't charge the phone occasionally while at work I will be at around 25% with moderate usage. I have not figured out what is doing it. I turned off location services and that didn't seem to help. Turning off BT didn't either.

I helped it a little bit by: turning off most of my Location services, and turned the icon back on (since update it was set not to show), that way i can see what is using it. still not Full Capability yet though :(

I have an iPod touch and my battery life has definitely been worse. It doesn't let me see percentages but I definitely have been hitting the 20% low battery a lot faster than I was a week or so ago on iOS 5.

Make sure battery percentage is off. My friend told me that long time ago he said that drain the battery.
I don't think this is true, although I'd prefer to have the percentage off as it stops me obsessing over it. However, since I jailbroke my phone I can't turn off battery percentage even though its no longer jail broken.
