Currently running Beanstalk 4.4, which seems nice, but it's not as smooth as I'd like and the battery life doesn't seem great. What would you guys suggest? 4.3 or 4.4; either is fine. Would prefer AOSP, and I need my power toggles.

Try them for yourself. Thats the beauty of having so many ROMs. Try them and pick your favorite.

I'm going to try a few, but I'd just like some suggestions.

I installed MEOW kernel over Beanstalk and my battery life doubled... Sitting right now at 25% battery after 18.5 hours and 3 hours 12 minutes screen on time. Awesome.

If you want a kk ROM I'd suggest Nameless Rom under the original android development forums. Not as many features as 4.3 or beanstalk ROM but super smooth and stable with decent battery life. If you like flashing or updating often, mokee is another great rom with ota nightlies that you can flash daily.
