Default [Q] ROM with the least battery consumption?

The title says it all, lately I have been having battery problems. I have removed most of the apps I had, been using deep sleep, and I kill all running tasks. I think its my ROM.

I am running Pacman 4.3

There are WAY too many factors at play when it comes to battery life to really narrow it down to a "best ROM". Keep your screen dark, turn off location services and data when not using them, avoid poor wifi connections in settings, set screen timeout to shortest possible, etc...

Do your best at minimizing battery loss. Keep in mind, this is a small computer. It WILL suck a lot of battery. There is no magic app to give you days of use. The ROM you run really won't make much of a difference. It's the services and how you maintain your battery that will.

In my experience, Houstonn's 4.3 PA and stock 4.4 builds have been the lightest on battery.

Though, At this time, Any 4.4 is good.

I second the fact that houstonn's 4.4 AOSP build is the best battery performance I've seen.

The two biggest battery consumers are the screen and the data radios. Anything you can do to decrease y the battery usage of those two will give you the best battery life.

To that end, an app like JuiceDefender configured to manage the days radios can go a long way to extending battery life.

I flashed SlimKat 4.4.2 beta 1.6 WEEKLY and the battery has been outstanding. I use JuiceDefender Ultimate and lower screen brightness along with limited connectivity when the screen is off. Unplugged for 8 hrs and used for at least 4 today. I'm still over 70%!

I haven't had any bugs, random reboots, or force closes.. SlimKat is a great build thus far!
