There are misbehaving apps out there that seem to drain battery power even after killing them in the multi-tasking bar. The only way to get my iDevices back to normal power consumption is to hold down my power button until the turn off iDevice bar appears, then swipe to turn off.
I think some apps consume power once they are installed. I recently deleted all the games off my iPhone and especially the Facebook app. Now I make it theough a typical work day with like 70% left. I used to get 0-40% with all my apps installed. The main culprit was the Facebook app, which drains my iPhone's battery unless I turn on GPS, which would also drain my iPhone battery. So deletrd.
