Default Xposed Gravitybox Batterylife?

Hey guys I was wondering if using system tweaks (made possible by Xposed Gravitybox ) on the Nexus 5 uses extra battery life.
Could you help me out?
Thanks in advance

Should not, seeing that the xposed module does its work during boot. I never experienced increased drain when using it on my N4 and nothing out of the ordinary on my N5 either.

But do you still experience some more battery drain?

Can't say that I do. I experience better battery life with stock ROM and stock kernel with xposed than I did when using custom ROMs.

I ran stock for 1 month unrooted. Just rooted 2 weeks ago and run xposed with gravity box. I have noticed zero difference in battery life. I get my usual 4 to 5hrs screen time as I always have

You are running stock ROM and stock kernel I guess?

There is zero battery impact regardless of kernel. I was running it on stock ROM and kernel, and now stock ROM and Franco kernel.

I use Xposed + GravityBox on all three of my devices (Nexus 5, Nexus 7, Moto X) and there is no negative effect on battery life or performance on any of them. It's wonderful.
