Just to clarify: you are getting 11 SoT and 29 hour total with one charge with the latest CM? Holy frak that's awesome. What were you getting before? Maybe, your device is an anomaly of some kind because many others have said that they get 5h~ SoT. Personally, I'm usually around the 7h mark with low brightness, while I'm reading on Chrome/Moon.

I haven't had my Tab Pro 8.4 long but so far I have tried Stock Touchwizz (obviously), CM12.1, RR, Euphoria and Revolution 1.1 (I have just installed this last night). Up until last night I found stock touchwizz to be better on battery but as Revolution 1.1 is based on stock but heavily debloated I think this one is just shading it in terms of battery performance.

When I first installed Resurrection Remix and Euphoria my battery seemed to drain pretty quick but after tweaking the governor it seemed to help a bit, although still not as good as stock. Strangely, the CM12.1 nightly I installed seemed to be a bit better on battery than Euphoria or RR but it may be because it was a later developed nightly (one of last weeks I think). It's a shame because I loved the CM12.1 lollipop interface but battery is quite important to me so it had to go. Hopefully battery performance will keep improving, possibly more when we officially get lollipop on our tabs.

So far I'm happy with Revolution 1.1, I think I'll be sticking with that for the time being

I am using the latest Resurrection Remix rom now and I am having around 3 to 4 hours of SOT from the normal usage with good brightness but no heavy gaming. Kind of disappointed compare with the stock. How about you?

My brightness is quite low, it always is on stock rom. I spent most of yesterday setting up my home screen, apps (downloading a lot) and playing games for quite a while in the evening... so quite heavy usage. Now I have everything set up I'm hoping to get a lot more SOT.

From yesterday's readings I'm getting 5 hours SOT under that heavy use. On stock, before, I was getting 6/7 depending on usage... So i expect this to be similar if not marginally better. In powersaving mode without gaming I could probably push 8 hours - that's my estimates but I'll keep you updates with readings

Yes on stock I was getting 6-8 hrs, cm boosted it 3+hrs at least...
