Fast battery drain + HOT phone

http://androidforums.com – For some reason my battery is draining incredibly fast. I thought maybe I'd installed something that was eating it so I re-flashed and didn't let it auto-restore. That hasn't helped. I also noticed that the phone feels hot. I was running a battery monitor app that showed it was hitting 116 degrees. I'm considering unrooting and taking the phone to Verizon and swapping it out.. For the record, my wife has an identical phone sans root and external SD card. Hers does not have these issues. Is this a fluke or is this phone known to run hot and drain the battery fast? (General)
