Default Low battery life

Hello,

Since I bought my cell (about 1 year ago) I've been experiencing low battery life. I've used different roms, tried about almost everything to decrease battery consumption (2g, no wi-fi, etc) but it still lasts about max 8h (moderate usage). While using continously it lasts max 2-3h. So is this normal, what could I possibly do about it or should I just buy a new battery?

Currently running Nova Hd RC 21-39 with Supernova pre RC-3 kernel.

Other stats are:

Screen - 92% (on automatic though) Wi-fi - 7%
Mobile stand-by - 3%

Yes, it makes 102% kinda weird ^^

don't sorry about screen percentage, its heaps inaccurate.

Could you install system panel from the market and tell me what the cpu's are doing on idle?

Nothing really special, it varies tho sometimes it goes to max instantly and drops back within 2s

I'm pretty sure the battery if screwed. You can pick one up off eBay for a steal.

Your cpu is at 50% all the time, how is that nothing special?
Install os monitor and check whats using the cpu.

Wait. When you say drops back? What does it drop back to?
