can anyone recommend some good battery life suggestions? I'm getting horrible life on the battery. I've got the extended battery and so far it's been off charge for an hour and a half, and screen on time has been 25mins and already have a 25% drain, it's sitting at 75%. running aokp build 5 (though not blaming the rom as it was like this on sourcery and miui) with newest Franco nightly build. interactive governor. I've also got better battery stats to see if there are rouge apps killing battery, absolutely nothing. And I've disabled most system sounds as I've read those are possible drainer. brightness never above 50%, it's usually under 25%. iI should note that I feel like I'm getting better battery once I swap out the extended and put the older smaller one back into the phone. Could it be the extended battery has gone bad?

Your battery is bad.

I recommend using the Search bar. ;)

I turn off LTE all the time, only time I turn it on is if I'm going to download or stream anything. mostly on CDMA mode only.

After you replace your battery :P, set the minimum proc speed to 192. Then create a new script in system/etc/init.d. Paste in the following code:
#!/system/xbin/bash
echo "1450 1425 1400 1300 1250 1275 1250 1225 1150 1025 725" > /sys/class/misc/customvoltage/mpu_voltages;

This will undervolt your processor to 725@192 every boot while leaving all other values at Franco's default or controlled by Smart Reflex through the default speeds.

It all depends on the Rom, kernel, and apps you have installed. I'm currently running Jelly Belly with Tiny Kernel and am consistently seeing an average of 8+ hours with moderate use. This is on a stock battery. Just try different ROM's and kernel configurations until you find a happy medium. Some ROM's work better than others on different phones (even if they are the same type of Phone, like two Galaxy Nexus).
