Default [Q] Battery life, tw vs AOSP vs GE

Hello there,

I have an S4 i9505, I've been trying every ROM out there, and as much as I like TW, specially its E-Mail app, it's a fact that GE or AOSP / Cyanogenmod feels incredibly lighter & smoother. But, last night I installed CM11 and left the phone unplugged for the whole night, and battery drained 17% when usually it loss 7% with TW for the whole night without usage.
Any body else getting battery drain with CM?, what is your personal experience with battery life for thees ROMs?

thank you very much in advance.

CM11 is on pair with my old TW tweaked for battery performance.
I'm don't play games so I'm a medium heavy user. I get about 4 hours screen time during a full day and have 20-30% left when I tuck it in
When asleep it uses about 1%.
GT-i9505 LTE
Firmware daily: CM11 jflte NIGHTLY ... thread and changelog
Recovery: TWRP 2.8.0.1
Launcher: Apex Launcher Pro with Apex Notifier
SDCard: SanDisk Ultra 64GB (exFAT)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Samsung Firmware: NEE-I9505XXUFNB9 (KNOX 0x1 F*** Samsung).
Rooted with: CF-Auto-Root
Occasionally recover it from a NanDroid backup ... but prefer CM11

I get about 5hrs screen on time with cm11 so it's pretty good.
