Default [Q] Battery draining too fast

I have a problem with my battery I have my new sgs 2 and I rooted and did a new rom and all but my battery is draining really fast under moderate use! 3 hours of moderate use and I lose about 30% battery! What can be the problem? I calibrated and did speedmod kerenel, still heavy drain... in sleep mode I guess it can last like 2 days but I want to use my phone constantly without loosing so much battery

As far as I can tell based on this information, you have no drain. It's normal that the screen consumes power. If you standby time is 2 days, then you have no battery drain.

Lower your screen brightness and avoid using white colours. And no there is nothing else you can do.

But I see slot of people who get 10 hours of use on moderate and even heavy use,.. maybe it's my rom? I use rarity rom with speedmod kernel, maybe I should use checkrom?

No one gets 10 hours with screen on. Thats what you are talking about right? You get 3-4 hours max.

So 30% in 3 hours is normal and not bad.

Whichever ROM makes you not use your phone. Probably best to choose the worst looking one you can find, so you're less likely to use it.
