I am satisfied with my Nexus 5 since it's on Cyanogenmod 11 4.4.2 nightly 20131220.

To get best battery life, should I get Franco Kernel r24 (does that work right with CM11?) or should I keep the stock Cyanogen kernel?

And if I should install Franco kernel, what are some noticable changes using my device?

Thanks in advance

But is the franco kernel improving my battery life more than my cyanogen kernel does?

probably yes, as franco focuses a lot on battery saving. My experience with franco kernel is just awesome!

I don't know about CM's kernel, but with franco.kernel you can undervolt to save even more battery life.

For battery, I think Franco kernel is your best bet. Im currently running it with cataclysm custom rom. However, If you want to tinker a bit i would suggest Element X kernel for you to be able to undervolt AND underclock
