So yesterday, I updated my phone to 8.3 (and lost my jailbreak of course). My battery is draining fast, and my friend has an iPhone 5s on 8.3 land it lasts much longer & charges faster.

Try restoring again and see if it helps. If not it could be your backup so you could try setting it up as a new phone. Also this is not a jailbreak question.

I didn't restore, I just updated. If I backed it up at current state, and restored it, do you think I could continue off of that backup?

You should just do a fresh restore
