Can anyone explain or has anyone had the same problem where after a system update sent periodically the batter life goes from 2-3 days to 4-5 hours?
The last two updates I did with the BB plugged into an AC source and even when plugged in, the battery goes from 100% to red bar within 2-3 hours. I've gotten a new battery from Verizon after each update I've done in the past.
What are the consequences if you ignore the software updates?

If your device is working well, with no problems, you don't have to update. But I'd still recommend it.
Per your battery: The BlackBerry cotaines an on-device battery meter. When you wipe/upgrade, it actually resets or puts the on-device battery meter at a new level, sorta confusing it as to what is 100%, or full.
Read my charging tips here for the point on how to reset that battery meter...
