Default 4.4.2 Battery drain

I've tried a couple kitkat roms for my note 2 and the battery drains at 15-20% an hour with no activity. It's also slow to charge.
Is this common with 4.4.2? Should I stick with 4.3 for the time being?

Trying and using are a lil different.[emoji48]
Trying we flash it (Rom) then if it's not acting right we flash something else...

Using is when you AT least let the Rom settle into your phone/device. A day or two should be good enough to know what's doing what...
Check this app out if you don't have it yet»» http://goo.gl/vffD4d
In order to compare battery stats...

Another thing is your kernel and your setting that affect your battery life...

Me 3¢ short of a nickel...

Bajanman is dead on. Gotta let the ROM settle.

However, in the meantime, check your Location settings. In "Mode" take it off "High Accuracy" and change to "Battery Saving"

This was draining my 4.4.2 ROM'd Note 2 badly.

15-20 % per hour with no activity ??
Uh....yeh....something is beyond messed up. ..

I've never seen battery burn like that. ..on any rom for this device. ..

What rom ??
What kernel ??
What method of cleaning are you using prior to flashing ??

A bit more information will help us to help you. ...g

Thanks for the replies.
I tried aokp nightlies and omnirom for a few days each.
I'm on the latest cyanogenmod nightlies now and battery life is much better.
