    I haven't used any of the three. But I've essentially doubled my battery life running the AOKP ROM Milestone1 and the kernel that is apparently from Gummy. I've been able to undervolt significantly on this kernel, and I know that varies with individual phones, but it helps battery a lot.

    I'm on the latest Axiom release and have 6 1/2 hours on straight 4G LTE with 75% battery life left. I'm very happy with those results!

    Seriously? How? 6 1/2 hours on 4G LTE gets me to 5%...

    Are you also using wi-fi? Extended battery?

    I'm using extended battery no wi-fi. With wi-fi, and no LTE, battery is much better.

    No extended battery, pure LTE!

    Its all about the kernal ...the one included in this ROM uses a system that shuts down cpu1 when the screen is off.

    I also always do a full battery calibration when I change ROMs

    I had similar results as you before switching over to Axiom, you should try it!

    Currently sitting at 9 hours and 45 min. with 60% bettery left!

    It's not just the ROM but the kernel as well. So if you find a kernel that works well, you may be able to put it with a ROM you like, if they play well.

    And a kernel that works well for one phone might not be the best for another.

    I am currently running Axiom 2.2 and it's been great for battery life on my phone.

    I have had fantastic luck with the Lean kernel as well so another vote for that. on wifi 80% and 4G 20% yesterday I went 12 hrs and was at 54% when I plugged my phone in before bed.

    AOKP ROM has great battery life.

    Any ROM + Imoseyon's Leankernel is good.

    Right now I am mixing the two.

    I have heard good things about Francokernel, but I didn't have a good experience on it. Battery life was not as good as the above options.

    I went to Vegas with AOKP stock, and was getting more than a day on 4G. Although I have a feeling Imoseyon would have gotten even better

    I am running Gummynex with the included lean kernel and battery life is INSANE.
