iPhone OS 3.1.3 Causing, Not Fixing, Battery Issues?

Amongst the quite small list of changes that Apple mentioned when the 3.1.3 iPhone OS update was released was: improvement in the accuracy of reported battery levels on the iPhone 3GS.

Ironically, just a week after that update ‘s release, there are reports that users are having some serious battery related issues after updating to 3.1.3

According to the details so far, the battery issues are suggesting that the iPhones are running hot, well hotter than normal and that the battery status indicator has been jumping around widely. That is not necessarily saying the battery life has gotten worse, just that it is not being accurately reported. But at the same time, there has also been some reports of users claiming that they are now seeing lost hours in terms of battery life.

I haven ‘t done the update to 3.1.3 as yet, because there ‘s no great new feature to make me tempted, and I am very fond of my current jailbreak setup and have no desire to mess with it for anything short of a major update from Apple.

Have any of you updated to 3.1.3 yet?  If so, have you seen any of these reported issues?
