Default OS update and BB Maps drains my battery

Please Login to Remove!

I've been away from the forums a while and popped back in to check on teh latest software. I found the OS to be updated for my 7520 as well as the addition of Blackberry maps.

After a successful installation, I noticed the following days leading to today that my battery would drain after 5-6 hours of light usage. I have been getting at least 14 hours before my last bar appears prior to both these updates.

Does anyone have the same experience? I made sure the 'GPS' function of BB Maps is off. I also close the software when not in use.
