    I've noticed this too. I think I am losing something like 15% an hour just listening to a pre-downloaded podcast.

    I noticed it the other day after I did the iOS 6 upgrade.

    Beforehand, I could go most of the day and end up at like 40% to 50%. Since iOS 6, using it for 3-4 hours (not even actively just having it off the charger and listening to music or occasionally checking something) made it go into the 40's or less.
