thx for reply, I got this solved.
The reason is the file permission for battd is somehow failed to set. I fixed that by manually set the permission in the terminal.


UPDATE

For ppl who has the same problem but don't like to go into the command terminal, here's a GUI way:
You need the root explorer or es file explorer. First mount the system folder as writable, then navigate to the file /system/bin/battd, long press and select permisson or properties. then set the permisson to: [user:rwx, group:r-x, other: r-x] (r:read,w:write,x:execute).
Now reboot, done, enjoy the fix.

I dunno if this related to this fix, but I've noticed my phone wont charge past 98%. It says fully charged at 95, and goes slowly to 98 and stops.. should I use recovery to wipe stats once it gets to 98? The battery calibration app I use sometimes says its not good to force early calibration..?

That'd be safe to do? My battery voltage at 98 looks to be about what it was at 100, so it seems it just reads wrong

Well, after installing Ninja ROM and wiping battery stats from CWM, my battery issues went away. Now I get more than 30 hours with light use and 24+ with moderate use. Battery decreases only 6% or less overnight.

Here are my stats

When should I be resetting the battery stats from CWM? Once the charge is full or dead?

Well, I wiped them after a full charge. Then I let it drain to 1% and then charged without use till it reached 100%.

It seemed to work flawlessly.

Thanks for letting us know, but I'm not impressed at all!

On your second screenshot it clearly shows almost no screen on time, which translates to almost no real use of the Atrix!

So yeah, moot point...

I also experienced the same problem as DeXtmL and I don't have the portable charger. So I can't use the phone now. Let me be more specific. After flashed this, I had a question mark appeared inside the battery shape. Occasionally, there are messages saying that I have invalid battery and it's not charging. When the battery is completely drained, I can't even power it on. Now, it's just a big screen with the question mark inside the battery shape on my phone. Please help. I guess I have to buy the portable charger to charge it and once it powers on I can set the battery file. I don't even know how to set the battery file as DeXtmL mentioned.

So.. Is it established that Ninja ROM uses less battery as opposed to Ken's v4.5?
