    As others on their board, I'm having issues with the 4s battery life. As a test, I want to drain the battery completely and then see how it reacts after a full charge. I've yet to bring it down all the way as I constantly need it on weekdays for phone calls.

    What is the best way to quickly drain it? I do not have videos or music on it (it is a business phone) so having it play something endlessly does not seem like an option. Is there a particular app or something which I can set it at and then leave it alone to drain?

    So your battery is NOT draining fast enough?

    Maybe you don't have an issue :)

    youtube over 3g, find one of the old 4 hour long videos to stream, probably should do it or get close to it.

    If you're on Wifi, stream Pandora, run Google Maps, turn brightness all the way up and make sure auto-lock is off. Should be dead in a couple hours.

    leave wifi on,3g, turn brightness up and location services on and watch a hq movie or 2 that should do the trick and of course open a lot of apps that are demanding like google maps etc.
