But can I only flash cm12 and gapps from this recovery safely? And then again flash cm12 boot.img?
I have problems with miscellaneous battery drain, too, using cm-12-20150117-UNOFFICIAL-amami. Anyone that used this ROM has noticed improvement in official releases? Any thought is very welcome.
Does anone know how to delete Google now ? I've CM12 installed eith micro-gapps, would it be possible to do a manual install of one of the further nightlies together with pico-gapps for removing the google apps I dont want?

more details? try some battery analyzer like Battery Doctor or so. Few tips have been mentioned in this thread already so look here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=58297439&postcount=533
you can try to tune auto brightness, location service or wireless scanning.
What's the recommended way of installing CM12?
It bit me abit, because the CM updater offered CM12 after CM11 without any warning, I installed the update without thinking , and got lost without a (for me) working recovery - therefore I could not even revert to a Nandroid backup. So, CM12 itself install itself flawlessly, but I don't quite get the right way to install a working recovery (CWM preferred, because my Nandroid backups are in that format).
Easiest way is the app Rashr. Download it from Play Store and flash a compatible recovery through it. The app requires Root (you can simply enable it in the developer settings).
Compatible recoveries are found here on XDA. You can find a link to a compatible version of TWRP if you follow the link in the OP.
No clue for CWM as I always use TWRP. You have to search it yourself or somebody else can help you.
