Are there any tweaks,mods that I have to apply ? Is there a custom kernel that is preferable ?
I usually get 7-10+ hours, but I also keep mine on a wireless charger if I'm sitting at my desk or if I'm away and don't need it. Here's my setup that may help your battery life:
Location Settings: Battery Saving, this especially helps on stock ROM
Kernel: ElementalX 2.6: Overclocked to 1.8 GHz and undervolted on lower frequencies with elementalx governor. Cool thermal throttling, max screen off frequency is 1.026 GHz. GPU overclock to 450 MHz, ondemand.
If your screen brightness is up over 50% it's wasting a lot of power. I keep mine around 20-25% or on Auto.
When the screen is turned off it doesn't drain too much either. Overnight, 6-7 hrs, drains maybe only 5%. I'm going on 14 hrs battery with only a little bit of charging from the wireless qi charger.
