Default Battery life for 4.2.2

My battery used to last for 2days on normal useage (without playing games) when am still running on 4.0.4 but after updating to 4.2.2, it drains so quickly that it won't last upto 6hrs without doing anything with the phone.
How can i solve this issue? I won't mind returning to 4.1 but I don't want to go back to 4.0.
Can custom rom solve the problem?
i don't mind any version of the custom rom.

You're referring to AOSP rom or sense-based rom?
If you're running sense based roms, take a pick at what you want than use xm's kernel and if its AOSP rom, the battery life should't be that bad since I lasted 2 days with both types or rom.

Have you taken a look at your wakelocks?
They could be the cause of the issue...

What about location settings in settings and google play services settings?
Turn them off and for google play services settings, turn off location and remote wiping of device or locating the device and your battery should be fine

You have to install a sense 4.1 custom rom. That's the easiest way, it has to be based on 3.18 software or a bit higher like 3.20....otherwise the touchscreen won't work.

So you can try for instance

Viper x 3.8.0
Mike's stock rom 3.20.401

These are examples so you know what to look for.
