Guys, another member with yet another battery drain thread. I could have asked my questions on an existing thread but didn't want to hijack anyone's thread.

From full charge I'm losing 3-4% battery within 2 hours.

I'm rooted with custom recovery and stock ROM.

I have WiFi on during sleep only when plugged in.

Location services all turned off.

Any help massively welcome.

Here are a few screen shots for info.

[/COLOR]The very first thing to try is turning off WiFi off when screen off. Something is waking it up constantly. Leave WiFi on. That may alone fix the issue.

Try it first anyway.

That's the first thing I thought, it's not doing the battery any favors to have the WiFi flip on and off like that. WiFi is easier on the battery than data, so unless you have data disabled and are switching over to voice/SMS only it's more efficient to idle over WiFi.

That might not be the case if you're attempting to use a WiFi with a much weaker signal than your data connection. However in this set of screenshots it looks like a mix of weak and strong mobile connection which would cause extra drains (especially the red full drops).

Biggest issue is all that awake time though.

dont waste your time looking for a cause, google play services is biting you. its a kmown current issue with the play services. i used to use the disable service app to disable all location services from the play services app, and used to fix it for me.

Thanks guys for the suggestions.

I've turned WiFi on always and still the battery is draining fast. 4-5% within 2 hours.

Android system is a big drain. No idea why. Google play services is currently at 5%

Try using CPU tuner. I've used it on all my devices thus far and have had great battery life thus far. Average full charge on high usage lasts about 14-16 hours

Try also to change kernel, you are rooted so there are no problem, i suggest you to try the big bum kernel that you can finde here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/goog...bum-5-t2774572 it's simply a franco kernel with some optimization andi like it so much! I've no google play service in battery info and it's update very often!
