I recently updated to kitkat and do not at all feel any change in battery life. I think it all depends on on which version of firmware you are using. There are so many different roms available may be some have bugs or something. I feel no adverse effects of kitkat.

Default Installing 28000mAh batt:System ignores actual voltage, when estimating charge level.

Check low and high voltages on your battery
You can do this with many software from Android play store
My high voltage (100%) is 4.315 and low was 3.6 or 3.4 (not quite sure because now I'm testing new battery)

It seems like operating system does not estimate charge level from the battery voltage
It is rather done from power consumed from the battery

High voltage is always 4.315 because of constant current / constant voltage charge algorithm

But if you start your new firmware from a low charge, operating system can underworlt and damage your battery

Now it shows 43% with 4117mV on battery!!!

I've been running Kit Kat for a while now and haven't seen any noticeable changes in battery life.
