Question [Q] Festival battery saving rom/settings?

I will be soon be going to a festival for a few days and will be taking my Samsung Galaxy S4 (i9505) and would like the battery to last as long as possible. Does anybody have any suggestions of roms, or tweaks so I can get the most of of my battery life.

I will be performing a clean install of the rom and will be disabling unneeded apps and services such as sync and internet but wondered if there is anything else i can do

Install this MOD http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2789666

Ultra Power Saving Mode from Galaxy S5. You'll have battery maybe 9days

Sorry i forgot to mention I'm running cm11 atm, so that mod won't work.. I was looking at portable power packs but noticed they can only charge my phone 2/3 times unless i spend alot of .. I have just bought two spare batteries which may charge up and take for 2.40 each

best option for festivals is to buy some old old nokias. battery lasts for days on those things and plus no one wants to steal them!

but if you have to take your sparkly new S4 then you could try putting it into airplane mode whenever you're not using it and turn airplane mode off only if you get separated from your group? you probably won't get a great reception in the middle of a field anyway, which is one of the biggest battery drainers when it's constantly searching for a signal.

::EDIT::

also, don't forget to disable sync settings and location settings too.
