Unfortunately, I think i might actually have to upgrade to a newer rom because the 1 game i play on it is not officially supported anymore and I'm getting weird issues with it.
I've tried the CM 4.4.4 twice (once around the time it was released, and once a year or 2 ago) and I couldn't get the battery drain less than 1 and/or 2% per hour, so I reverted back to ICS seeing as there were no real advantages to using a newer rom.
(with these numbers, I use the tablet once a day for 15-20 minutes, i would have to recharge the tablet every 3 or so days, vs a bit over once a week with ICS rom)
So I'm wondering what are some REAL stats from different rom users are getting.
Here are some examples of good and bad battery drain as seen with the 3C battery monitor widget here
I'm using Milaqs 4.4.4 Kitkat in this example. Try it yourself and compare your stats from the history tab in the 3C app
Lower mA is better and we want to see nice low stable numbers during deep sleep

My battery is still pretty damn good considering the age. However, battery dies when it hits the 10-15% mark, so I might have like 4000mah battery left.

The health of the battery is all down to your usage, considering you occasionally use the tablet I'd expect your to have 5000mah+ of battery life still left in the tablet. The tablet i'm using in this example has been used daily since 2011 and had all manner of tests run on it. So its possible your battery might be in better shape than mine.
The HP Touchpads battery does tend to die suddenly at 10-20% so that's a somewhat normal behavior for the tablet. As Nevertells often says if it ain't broke don't fix it, so there is no immediate need to upgrade your tablet if it does everything you want it to. However app compatibility is the biggest complaint when using older builds, I'd recommend using CM11 Kitkat from Milaq or Jcsullins if you can game works with it otherwise move up to Android 7/8. Now you know how to test your tablets battery stats and have all the available guides and info, happy flashing.
Here are the two main install guides for the HP TouchPad. Double stuff has a great guide that's easy to use. I've got a guide below too which has more steps but also instructions for keeping WebOS if needed.

You will be surprise to find out for how long the Tablet can hold the charge. If you have not done it yet, re-flash the battery firmware using the ToolBox and you will have a brand new Tablet!
Please stop spamming the forum with links to your thread in response to every question or I will contact the moderators. If you can answer someone's question and want to help that's fine but stop telling people the minor performance bump from the swap partition will make the tablet brand new, that's simply not true and off topic.
