Guys got a quick question. I usually run stock based roms. I've ran most of the CM builds for a little bit. Not really long enough to get a good idea about which CM Rom has the best battery life once the Rom settles in...I usually get impatient and flash back to my stock based custom, or stock modded Rom..
So that being said, I want to give a CM build a good run a week or so. But one of my main conversation is battery life. But I'd like to get some suggestions before I start flashing. As to avoid running several different roms..

Long story short what CM build would you suggest for battery life & why?
Thanks in advanced.

Not sure if help but in my experience AOSP roms run long on battery but ever got little low more signal strength

Omni is another thing too good to be true but unfortunately no much love for us and e980

My all time love kang AOKP until 4.3 was king now with 4.4 no much love 😷

Did you use beanstalk ROM before?
If so, may I ask for your opinion what are the pros and cons compare to CandyKat?

You aren't actually getting lower signal. Stock based ROMs falsely show better signal so the carrier can say they have more coverage. I could have 5 bars on stock while only have 2 on AOSP yet the dBms are exactly the same. AOSP shows you what you're actually getting.

I've used them all. Weighing pros and cons isn't something I want to do because they are all stellar and I appreciate all developer efforts. I will say that battery-wise, I'm pretty even across all ROMs in that I get about 3 hrs of screen on time no matter how long I'm off the charger. I must be pretty consistent in how I use my device, because that seems to hold since I flashed the madmack modem. And I'm actually on Beanstalk now. I flash nearly constantly because I love features of all ROMs and can't commit to just one

Just for $h!t$ ad giggles, an update. This is latest Beanstalk, stock kernel, Interactive governor and deadline scheduler. Pretty sweet.

I've been using CM 11 M4 and M5 for the last 3 weeks and it's much better than the stock one. Just don't know why some time CM11 automatically switch the CPU frequency to 1.1ghz then switch back to 1.7ghz all the time
