    I've had my phone off of charger for 48 hours, and still have 49% battery left on 17L (using Franco kernel). Granted, that is with only 2 hours of SOT, but I've been streaming podcasts and talking quite a bit, so it's not like the phones just been sitting there doing nothing.

    I'm very happy with the battery life. It's close to 11s before I got hit with the dreaded "Android OS" battery suck. That ordeal convinced me to just wipe and upgrade to 12s and as a precaution I disabled per-app performance profiles and set to battery saving mode.

    I was going to hold off the upgrade initially and just stick to 11s a few more months but having been urged to move to 12s I'm quite happy with it.

    Check your battery usage. You'll probably find Android OS is a the top of the usage chart.
    This could be google play services or something else consistently keeping services awake.
    Try and consider the last few items you installed, and search for a couple key thing here and online:
    "Privacy guard" and "google play services" and you'll find topics addressing this, with possible fixes.

    I still have CM11 and my battery lasts more than 12 hours with heavy usage and LTE connectivity. So I believe that's better than 7hours battery with latest update

    Mine is lucky to get 4hours screen on time.
    Android System is being the biggest fattest consumer of my battery.

    I can't say I can relate exactly, but I'm losing a rough 1% battery for almost every hour that I sleep. At first I thought it was because I was connected to wifi (which can't exactly explain this too well, but still) but then I noticed this even when I was outside. Meaning, no wifi or mobile internet enabled.
    If you find anything that'll help, do share :)

    I'm afraid it's only getting worse for the last a few days. I've tried using 3G rather than LTE, but no difference found. The battery level drops nearly 20% for only 7 hrs overnight, which is really annoying. The top two on battery history are always Android Sytem and Android OS (it used to be screen back in CM11S). I leave wifi and sync on overnight but it should not consume that much of juice!
