The 6+ comes with iOS 8, which is supposed to track battery usage. If you go
into Settings, General, Usage, then Battery Usage, it lists how many hours it's
had of what it considers to be usage since the last charge, and how many hours
of standby. It might be useful, next time this happens, to check what these
figures are. It might just be that you're looking at the app a lot.
It also lists the %battery usage for each app for the last 24 hours and the
last 7 days. That might help you work out which app is doing it, although I
don't totally agree with what it tells me on mine.
If it turns out that it's just legitimate usage doing it then you might have to
buy an external battery so you can charge it in the field.
