Default [Q] Battery Drain and Data help!!!

I am running 4.4.2 on my S3 (AOKP Task650) but unfortunately I am receiving some battery drain. Is there a Kernel I could use to prevent this and save more battery? Which Kernel do you recommend most? Also I am having issues with my Data. I get "E" for edge in a 4G LTE area? Is there a radio that I can flash or APN for this to fix that problem?

Use betterbatterystats and see what's chasing the drain first

I can't afford to pay for any apps on the store as I have a lot of expenses to deal with. I have been having a huge drain on quite a few of the roms that I have been installing. What would be a good kernel to install? I heard that Task650's Underwear Kernel was best

Use the link that DocHolday posted. You can download betterbatterystats from there. As far as kernel Im not sure as I dont run Tasks ROM. I can tell you I have had issues in the past with data connection dropping and not getting correct signal. I flashed back to stock rooted and made sure everything worked. Then flashed my custom ROM again. That fixed it for me. But first I would try to use that app to see whats causing it.
