I need a good kernel and ROM to have the battery last as long as possible
Now I have Siyah kernel and CM10 ROM.
Is it a good combination?
Or should I change ROM or kernel to Dorimanx for example?

Siyah is Good, latest version, Dorimanx is also very good too. the option is yours to decide which one to use.
If you don't like one, just flash another one. It takes less than 5mins to flash a kernel

You're going to have to try for yourself. I personally am using siyah, but you might have better luck with another one. Don't forget, you can use different settings in ex tweaks to get even better battery life :)

With every kernel and android, just think about how you use the phone for saving battery. Like turn off wifi/data/sync whatever you are not using, to gain a little more battery. There is a lot of tweaks with every kernel and you will find them, searching the forums for the specific kernel.

GL tweaking

Hi!:) there a lot of people who suggested that kind of combo, but we can never really tell if it's real until we try it ourselves.

Try some tweaks ;) maybe you'll someday find the right "combo" that suits you. The thing here is that everyone has a different "type of usage".. you may have read a post "omg! I get the best battery life for this xxxx kernel/rom/whatever tweaks"... who knows? he/she could've just said that cause his/her phone had been on standby mode all along xD
