It's awful not even one bar most of the time, it looses connection and goes into emergency call only mode quite frequently. I know that will cause drain but will have to do until I move house.

Also when I use WiFi and go into work, there's no WiFi and I'm back on HSDPA. I switch WiFi off but often get a deleted_wakelocks which run wild or other WiFi wakelocks. So I have to reboot the phone to get rid of these wakelocks, don't know if that's normal or not? Doesn't always happen just sometimes.

Thanks

From the stats,bad signal is the cause of the battery drain.

'deleted_wakelocks' is a kernel wakelock.Changing Kernel/ROM should fix the issue.Nothing can be done manually to fix it.

For more info on deleted_wakelocks,refer this.

Good morning fellas. Here is my dump with WiFi and smart network disabled. Looking FWD to the feedback. Thank y'all.

But I think I did a no no. I went from lords beta 18 kernel to Zanezams U511 beta 18 kernel last night and don't know if that can do anything or if it even matters. But I do think WiFi may be the main reason for drain.

Was the signal strong?The awake time is 43s but the drain is very high.

If you have access to another WiFi,post a dump on that.

Try on a different WiFi.Not the one at your home.

Here is a pic next to my WiFi and the one last night which is about 20 to 30 ft away. I'll try with it next to it tonight.

The awake time is 15mins but the Wakelock/Alarm stats are clean except (): 3 m 16 s.

Does Wakelock Detector report anything abnormal?

Bad signal is one cause of the drain.If possible keep the phone at a place with good signal and post a dump later.

The stats were taken 2 hours ago , since then I have been using the phone. Not sure of WLD stats but I am facing this on more than one ROM . the only thing common is that on all ROMs I am using AK kernel with tweaks using Synapse. Seems to be issue with the kernel or tweaks since I experienced this on both SlimSaber and BrokenOS ROM.

    @DB126 My battery life has taken a moderate toll recently. For context, it is a 5000 mAh device, runs Android 10 with LineageOS 17.1, does not have any Google services or applications yet it went from 2-3 days with heavy use, to 13-14 hours at best, and takes forever to charge.

    I know this thread might be outdated and many recommendations do not apply anymore. Do you happen to know whether there's new tricks or threads that I can dive into? Got BetterBatteryStats installed and running thus far, but don't know where to go from here, given the newer Android version, different set-up, and it has been a few years since I last had to go through wakelocks or logs to narrow down what may be causing issues with my device's battery. Appreciate your input!
    Post your stats from BBS into the thread. Follow the suggested cycle from the OP, and make a post, people are very helpful there.

    Lets Start with a few basic settings.

    Display
    Display brightness is an important factor in battery life.The more brighter the screen is,the more juice it drains.So keep the brightness under control.Using automated brightness is not adviceable.Try manually adjusting the screen brightness.Using dark wallpapers(on AMOLED display) can help you save some bit of juice.

    Cell Network
    This is simple stuff,but results in noticeable improvement in battery life.Toggle LTE/3G to 2G while not in use.(While on WiFi).You can use Smart Network to switch between networks.
    For devices that support Fast Dormancy(Read Here) can disable it to save some juice on 3G.(Link to disable Fast Dormancy for Xperia Devices)

    Wifi
    Even if your wifi is off,the phone searches for signal.To switch off this feature,go to Settings > Wifi > Options(Top right corner) > Advanced >Scanning always available(Off).

    Location
    Another juice sucker in Android-Location Services.You can turn it off while not in use.That saves a lot off juice.You can also set the location to 'Device Only" in settings.
    Navigate to Settings->Location->Menu->Scanning->Turn off "Wi-Fi Scanning" and "Bluetooth Scanning"

    These are the basic stuffs one must look into before complaining about their battery.

    Is your battery gauge lying to you?:Take a look at this link.This thread explains why you get sudden drain after waking up from sleep.Many people should've noticed that the battery drains faster after keeping the phone idle for some time.It is very informative and is worth a read.

    Xposed Framework is essential as it is required fo proper working of Greenify,Amplify and PowerNap.If you're running android 4.0.3+ you'll be able to run Xposed Framework on your device.It has an initial Lollipop support.Xposed Installer is required for functioning of the apps mentioned in the guide.

    Downloads:

    Find the support for the framework in Xposed for Lollipop and Xposed for MarshMallow threads.

    Thanks to @oasisfeng for such an awesome app.The latest 2.9.2beta update brings the feature to disable the motion scanning in doze.
    You can use Greenify to hibernate apps that are not in use.You can use Donation Package of Greenify which includes lots of features.Once you have a Donation Package with you,you need to activate the Greenify Xposed Module in Xposed.Once done,enable the Boost mode and Experimental Features.See attached screenshots.

    Downloads:

    Greenify
    Donation Package


    Greenify the apps that eatup battery by running in background(Refer BBS)

    Below are some of the major drainers:

    1. Browser
    2. Facebook
    3. Facebook Messenger
    4. Google+
    5. Hangouts
    6. Hike
    7. Instagram
    8. Maps
    9. UC Browser

    Marshmallow Settings

    @oasisfeng introduced a new feature in Greenify 2.9 beta 1 which disables the "Motion Sensing" of doze.This can be achieved by turning ON the "Aggressive Doze" in Greenify settings.Unlike the default behaviour of doze,the device won't be kicked out of doze when a motion is detected.This helps in complete utilization of "doze".All you have to do is to enable the "Aggressive Doze" option in Greenify settings.See the attached screenshots.

    Apps to be whitelisted in doze are being tested.You can also contribute in testing :)

    There's no need to hibernate all the apps.Do not Greenify Dialer or Messaging apps

    Power Nap for Xposed is the SONY's stamina mod for non-Sony devices.When your screen is off, Power Nap maximizes your device's deep sleep time by stopping services, alarms and wakelocks from waking the device when the screen is off.You can get notification from the apps you've whitelisted.
    NOTE:In order to download the app you need to join the alpha testers community in Google+ here and opt to become a tester.Then you'll be able to download and run the module


    NB:XDA Thread for PowerNap is closed down due to lack of activity from the developer.



    Set the Endurance Mode to Always ON.

    You can use Power Nap along with Greenify and Amplify for a better sleep time.You have whitelist both Greenify and Amplify for proper working of both the modules.

    If you need certain apps to run in background while screen off(eg:Instant Messengers),you have to whitelist them in Power Nap.

    List of apps to be whitelisted:


    • Amplify
    • AndroidSystem
    • BetterBatteryStats
    • Cyanogenmod System
    • GooglePlayServices
    • Google Services Framework
    • Google Account Manager
    • Greenify
    • Greenify Donation Package
    • Trebuchet
    • Xposed Installer

    AppOps is a permission manager in android.There are various versions of AppOps available in the PlayStore.I recommend the one linked with Xposed.(You can also use CyanogenMod Privacy Guard).

    Downloads:

    AppOpsXposed

    You can use Privacy Guard to disable some permissions of Google Play Services and Google Services Framework

    Navigate to Settings->Hacks->Check FIX OP_WAKE_LOCK
    Disable the following Permissions of Google Play Services using AppOps

    • OP_ALARM_WAKEUP/Wake Up
    • Keep Awake

    Disable the following permissons of Google Services Framework

    • Keep Awake

    Use Auto Start Permission of AppOpsXposed to disable apps on Boot.Make sure you do not disable crucial System Apps.Disable unwanted user apps that trigger on Boot.
