Don't Ask this kind of question, it's not productive, and it depending a lot of your use.
Test yourself and you will see.

there is no best kernel for battery life. with any kernel available, you can have great battery life or absolutely terrible battery life. the kernel isnt the key to battery life. battery life depends on your personal usage, your personal setup, your personal apps used, and very much on the quality of the phone/data connection around you. everything elae is minor.

Yep agreed. You can "tune" any kernel to favour performance or battery. Its just different devs have different ideas about what the optimal balance is so defaults vary.

Its all about reading, learning and tuning.

We do not allow best ROM/kernel threads on XDA. Everyone has different uses meaning battery life varies from person to person. Best thing to do is head over to the development section, try some out and see which best suits your needs.
