You should be asking this in the Q&A section for your ROM and also read everything in both the Q&A and Dev section about that specific ROM, whichever one it is. There are probably others experiencing the same issues. I would not suspect this is caused by the Epic 4G battery.
Samsung Galaxy S Captivate :: CyanogenMod 11
Acer Iconia A500 :: TO 4.3.1
Generic Telechips TCC8900

I had been experiencing bad battery life on my captivate running CM7 and CM9. So I always used a deodexed ROM for my captivate which seem to be better on battery. When I found out about the Epic battery fitting my captivate I logged on to Amazon and purchased one of them right away and boy I'm glad I did. It has made all the difference in the world even running CM9. I now easily last all day. where as I had to plug my phone in at least 8 hours into my day. I highly recommend the Epic battery if you have a Captivate.

They are both the same battery. Buying it straight from Samsung means your paying the inflated price. I purchased that same battery from Amazon which was right around $19-$20 bucks. I'm glad I bought it to because it lasts me all day.

I have the one linked below and I can charge it at work in the morning and the charge will last me all day. Very happy with it for the cost.

Charge to 100%, use the phone until it shuts off from low battery, then recharge to 100% without using it. 2-3 cycles should be plenty.

Sent from my SGH-I897 using XDA

Is it the Samsung battery? Then, in my experience, you just pop it in and don't give it another thought.
