Unhappy Does Anyone Have Any Post Root Battery Advice?

I rooted this phone and I'm not using a custom rom(yet) but the battery life is still terrible. I deleted all of, or at least most of the bloatware. Anyways, my question is if anyone has any advice for what I could do. Would it be best to load a rom?

You could either load a custom rom or get an extended battery. I haven't tried most of the custom roms besides stock so I couldn't tell you which one has the best battery life, but you can try them for your self if you want just check out XDA and rootzwiki for roms.

I had to buy an extended battery, almost everyone at xda has bought one so it seems, you can get them cheap off of amazon. Check out these threads
