Default [Q] Battery life ROM

Hey All,

I flashed the Shiny ROM recently. I am getting pretty bad battery life though I didn't own the phone long enough before flashing a Shiny to know if this was a Shiny issue or not. Anyways, I like the ROM well enough but was curious if anyone could suggest another ROM that perhaps goes easier on the battery. I am just on the edge of getting a zero lemon battery but thought I might try a few more software tricks before I plunk down the cash for that battery.

I have already replaced the shiny kernel that is baked into the ROM with the KK422 kernel which I had heard is easy on the battery. Seems to be helping a bit so far.

I know that battery use is highly individual, I am mostly looking for a starting suggestion. I can run my own usage diagnostics.

Thanks yet again!

Use greenify and wakelockdetector. Also you can try to tweak with trickster to get better battery.

Thanks. After I wrote that OP it occurred to me, probably kernels more so than ROMs affect battery life. Just based on the little that I now that would seem to be the case. Is that true at all?

Yeah I noticed better battery life with kernels not so much by switching roms..
