Hi there!

I rooted my nexus 5 recently and experiencing a sudden drain in battery..i used to get 14 to 15 hrs of backup before rooting and now only 10 to 11hrs of backup..I then installed a power saver app to reduce the CPU frequency to conserve the battery life and currently running at 1.2 Ghz..while it doees conserve the battery..I'm still curious why all of a sudden a battery drain and is there any other way to solve this without underclocking the cpu frequency?

Now i am not saying you are lying but its very strange to hear rooting causing a battery drain. Power saver apps useless. Can you try unrooting to see if the problem goes away?

It could be one of the app you have in your device. Anyway to monitor what's causing the drainage. Install system monitor (

Also, Install Greenify, that should give you control to hibernate your apps (

Root itself cannot cause battery drain. It will be a coincidence

Did you install any mods after rooting?
