Dear developers,

I'm just wondering, is it just me or is everyone else facing the same problem. I felt that my Nexus 5 battery is draining so fast. In 1 day I can charge my phone twice. Sure, I played Asphalt for a bit. But I think the battery drain is still too quick.
I'm using Cataclysm ROM and Franco Kernel.

Should I use kernel controller such as FKU full version?

Any other tips maybe?

Have you tried setting the Wifi such that it is off when your phone is asleep. How about the setting to always allow scanning for Wifi networks? Did you turn off Google location history? One thing I've found is that the Wifi radio eats through the battery like crazy, even at idle, and changing these settings seems to make the biggest difference of anything.

I'm assuming you're on the latest 4.4.2? It's a common issue with the nexus devices so you're not alone there. But what you can do to minimize it is that to set your cpu governor to something modest like 'conservative' and put your i/o scheduler to "row" those settings have worked for me on my s4 to reduce battery drainage. If you have the ktoonservativeq option for Cpu governor then that's a good choice as well.

Which apps should I use to change those settings? FKU full version?

There's plenty of free apps out there that'll do the job. But for example, in cyanogenmod roma if you have developer settings enabled, there will be an option all the way down at the bottom that says Performance. You can change some settings over there as well

Playing a game like asphalt will drain your battery in no time, that's to be expected, if you play san Andreas is still worse
Try using greenify to greenify your apps through it's widget, I'm on beanstalk with Franco kernel and i get around 24 hours playing games like clash of clans and battle of zombies, but if play San Andreas i get only like 45 minutes, probably an hour
