Process shows which apps consume the most CPU time. Most apps should never go past a minute or so for a single battery charge. (Unless you’re using them ALOT or they are 3D games)

Partial Wakelocks shows processes that keep your phone awake even if the screen is off. They are using resources in the background. If you’re playing podcasts with the screen off… They will show here as AudioOut or something similar. Background data transfer, processing, etc…

Other misc data about phone state… How long wifi was on… how long the phone’s been awake… screen on… phone talk time… etc

Kernel Wakelocks things that the kernel is doing to keep the phone awake. Dragons be here. Partial wakelocks usually lets me find the culprit apps.

Alarms this is how many times each app has woken up your phone to do something. Apps that are ranked high are waking your phone up all the time. Llama with polling sometimes hits into the thousands for me.

In the end each of these panels is just a tool to point you in the direction to look. By combining all of the data and doing some trial app uninstalls you can usually find out what’s killing your battery pretty quick.
