Default What Custom ROM would you recommend for decent battery life?

I am using Resurrection Remix 1.1 and find it very good. I have tried chicken v6 Lightning ROM and Miui but keep coming back to resurrection remix.
I open to giving others try if recommended.

Whichever one stops you using your phone. I'd therefore suggest picking whichever you consider the ugliest.

In which case I suggest a really old build of CyanogenMod 9, preferably one where the RIL issue hadn't been fixed yet

On the contrary, I am currently using HyDrOG3N ICS and loving it!

I like Resurrection remix very much as well, but battery life only lasts 20 hours +/-,
with moderate use, but it is the best ics rom out there!!!

Try Simplistic ROM Lite. It has fantastic battery life after a few cycles, and the developer keeps in contact with the users.

Here is the link to the ROM:

Current Device's: Samsung Galaxy S IV, Asus Nexus 7, iPad 3
Retired Devices: Samsung Galaxy S2

Have you tried resurrection remix 1.1 which was released yesterday Autodroid will have to give it a couple of days before I can pass judgment but battery life appears a little better then previous builds
