N96 Battery life after 12.043 firmware

a few days ago I got fed up of T-mobile not rushing to provide new firmware for my N96, so I changed product code, and upgraded to 12.043. During the upgrade, when it got to about 95% done, it said I had unplugged my cable, and phone was stuck on Nokia Test Mode screen. I panicked, and after some stressing, and more than a few choice words, I unplugged my phone, took battery out, put it back in, and turned on. Happy days, My phone works, new firmware says its on, and phone now runs like a dream.

Except now my battery life is next to non existent. I charged it up before doing firmware, and left it plugged in during. I now have to charge it once a day, or it dies. I havent been using bluetooth, no music player or anything, just the odd text and call, nothing strenuous.

Is anyone else having this problem, or was it due to an uncompleted update?
I don't want to have to try updating again in case it fails again and bricks my phone, as it is always telling me I am unplugging it and putting it back in when in pc suite mode, yet mass transfer works fine. HHEELLPP!!
