I have kept the screen brightness at the lowest of the low, only turned on data when needed, and still my battery can't have more than 2:50 of screen on time before the battery dies (1%). I am assuming stock rom is most likely the best for battery life, but I require some custom features that only non-stock roms have. So what I am asking is, what else can I do to improve the battery, or what other roms have good battery life for Nexus 5

Thanks

You also need to examine wakelocks and hungry apps...d/l and use a wakelock detector and try to forego the top 5 apps that waste the most. (eg. Facebook?)

Damn..beaten by rootSU again!

roms dont really have anything to do with battery life. kernels do somewhat, but to a point. battery life is mostly affected by how you personally set up your phone, what apps you chose to install, how you personally use your phone, and mainly the quality of your phone/data signal. remember, as many phone users as there are, as many different ways that people use their phones.
