It could be its just showing a more accuarate battery life! If your really worried about your battery life I use a app called Battery Doctor Pro for my Ipod Touch 2g and it works amazingly!

Yes this is true. There are many bugs with iOS 4.3 that include less battery life.

If I may ask, what device did you update to 4.3?

i updated my iphone 3gs with it.
and i am shocked to see how fast its being drained.
normally i can use it 2 / 3 days now beginning of the second day its totally

i also use a battery app but doesnt help at all.
its so strange because normally an upgrade will improve battery life
now its the opposite !

ps : i am a normal user. most games i play on my touch
