Finally!  Relief to find out what was causing the battery to drain so quickly on my iphone 5 (ios6).  Simply: delete the podcasts app!  By 5pm in the day from a full overnight charge with the podcasts app installed would be around 10%-20% battery left with modest/good use throughout the day.  Today at 5pm (with no podcasts app installed on my phone) I have 50%+ still remaining (roughly same amount of use).


Only deleted the podcast app due to its (well documented) bugs and reverted to using the music app.


If you are having battery problems - worth giving it a go!
