I have a question;

I liked CM7 until the battery drain made it near difficult to use; will using this Talon kernel possibly fix the drain issue? If so, then I'm going to consider switching back.

Short answer--No. Long answer, while the kernel can not fix battery life completely, it can do something for it. Your problems won't be completely fixed, but will be somewhat mitigated.

Mounting SD card issues. There is a fix in the works.

To tell you the truth I'm getting the same battery life I had with Continuum. Some people are still getting drains depending on apps being used and such. There are so many variables to consider that I could tell you. You have to try it out and see how things go. Test different kernel settings in Voltage Control .... and monitor programs used to find what the culprit may be.

It has always been an issue until the latest round of Kernel updates. It mainly effects external SDCARDS but Vivified had a few intermittent issues with seeing the internel SDCard. (He wasn't running this kernel at the time).
