Please show mercy,

I already googled and searched xda for some time now, but I couldnt find any satisfying answer.
I own a Optimus 3D (p920), which is now rooted, has wkpark and cwm. Tried PACMAN and nameless KitKat 4.4.4.
Its fun !!! ^^

I dont have gapps, no games, no email push apps etc. Just the clean ROM flashed.

That leads to my question my question :
I learned that the wkpark bootloader (sometimes) drains a lot of battery, especially on flashing a ROM.
I learned that you shall flash a ROM only above 70%. Sometimes after a flash I have 12% left, sometimes only exactly 1 %.

Sometimes even a simple restart takes my battery from 60% to 20%.

Google wasnt a big help here and Im not a coder/programmer.
Id like to understand what exactly is going on, if there would be any advices I could follow or if there is even a solution out there, that I might have missed.

Noob friendly answers welcome.

Had to add this seperatly :

While sometimes a restart/re-flash made my battery down from 60% to 20%...just like today...it jumped from 60% to 20% and is now on 20% since 5 hours already...on normal use...which is not normal.

If I attach the power-cable, it jumps from 20% to 44% and starts loading. If its at 1% and I attach the powe-cable, it will start charging at 1 %.

And I thought battery (re)calibration is a myth ?

What is it that I dont (want to) understan here ?
