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.

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:

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

We don't recommend any custom rom for decent battery life. For the simple reason there is no such thing as the "best custom rom for battery life". You have your phone setup differently to everyone else, you use your phone differently to everyone else and your phone came out of the factory slightly differently to everyone else's.

A rom that runs well for me might not run well for you.

I suggest you go the development sections of the forum & read the first few pages and the the last 10-20 pages of the particular threads devoted to different roms. That way you will get an idea of the features/pluses/minuses of each rom, and also see other users' experiences with that rom.

Then you can test different roms for yourself to find one that works best for you.

I'm tipping this thread gets closed when mods wake up.
