I'm using Mahdi rom too, but it's not that bad, I think it's generally the G Pad not brilliant on battery.
I know this doesn't help with on-screen time, but get yourself Greenify app
which helps with off screen battery usage. You'll need Xposed module
for it to work.
You can stop wakelocks for certain things too. Get yourself Better Battery Stats
to show you what's eating your battery up, especially when in sleep. When you know what's causing wakelocks, you can block them with the Rom.
You can turn this feature on under Settings > Developer Options > all the way to bottom, find "Wakelock Blocker" > Click "Enable"
Here's a few which cause problems, for me anyway, by all means try them out and see if it makes a difference:
Hope that helps.
