Default Best custom ROM + kernel for battery life?

I used to root all of my previous Android phones, but when I got my Note 2 last year, battery life and performance was so good, I decided not to do it anymore and focus on other things. Well, after the 4.3 update, like so many others, my battery is now terrible...literally 30% less than it used to be even AFTER a factory reset with 4.3. For example, last night, while I was sleeping (and obviously not using my phone at all), I lost 22% battery over 6 hours...unacceptable.

Therefore, I want to root again and put a custom ROM on it...but I'd like to know the best combos out there for the Sprint Note 2? I know it's "personal preference" and "depends on usage, etc."...but what are some of the proven winners?

Any help would be appreciated...thanks in advance.

All the roms here are best, what is good for you is entirely up to you based on your testing and what you need.

Please take time to read, research, and test on your own.
