Default Samsung s2 and kitkat

Hey guys, sorry if this is not the right spot, I have a Samsung s2 with kitkat, the battery life is terrible.. I mean not the usage but whenever I charge my device it stays on 4% and doesn't move, unless I don't use the device and then it charges extremely slowly, I turned off ok google and that seemed to help for about a day and now it's just doing the same thing, this is with stock kernel, dorminx, different kitkat Roms, this didn't happen on stock 4.1.2, any help would be great

You might have something draining your battery... Charge your phone to 100% then show me a screenshot from the battery page in the settings when it goes to 1% or a "better battery stats" log

You should try other roms. Curently on my sisters SII runing Resurrection Remix 4.4.2 KitKat v5.1.5 and battery life is great.

Personally, I don't recommend dorimanx's kernel to anyone. By far, they are the least stable and have bugs (mainly because official development has been discontinued). Try using Pedestre's apolo kernel. Stable ever since earlier release.
Be sure to click the thanks button if you appreciate the help!
