I'm having problems with the battery life on my z10. It doesn't last more than 4 to 5 hours after a full overnight charge with the original BB charger.
I called my carrier who gave me another brand new BB Z10 and a brand new battery. Same issue. Nothing is turned on on the phone and I'm talking for not more than 20 minutes within the 4 to 5 hours. Maybe check my emails and type one or two. I'm not using the internet or play games or listen to music on purpose not to drain the battery. I haven't put any apps on it. The only thing I did was download my contacts from my old phone.
The phone gets very hot all the time even in stand-by, in the holster or in my pocket (can't carry in my pocket because it becomes uncomfortably hot).
I followed all of the suggestions posted here (have the latest OS, changed the settings accordingly, etc.) and it does not seem to have made a difference. As a long time use of BB, unless I can extend the battery life to at least 8 to 10 hours (a normal work day), I may be forced to move to another brand.

Often I find the phone is hotter when asked to do things in periods of weak coverage.
Battery life can be improved by using HSPA instead of LTE. Try telling the phone to ignore LTE signals if you don't need the speed.
