    I love my Nexus 5 and I'm rooted with CM11 and Franco Kernel. I get at least 10 hours of battery life, but only 2 hours of SOT :( What ROM has great battery life or what is your setup with your ROM? :)

    I use Cataclysm with Faux 07 using Faux Clock app to access his inteleplug add on to the kernel. So far today, I've got almost 3 hours of screen time all on LTE and I'm still at 61%.

    Stock works well for me. I am a light user and I keep wifi scanning and location off. I get 20-24 hours easy.
    I was on R19 Franco kernel. That was really good as well with Stock ROM and Cataclysm.

    I really like the Dirty Unicorns ROM with Franco. Cataclysm with Franco was also good. I don't fool with a lot of Franco settings yet as I need to research them more, but I use it to undervolt the CPU -50MV. I easily go all day and I put it on the charger each night.

    You may want to make sure you have chased down all the settings that affect battery life before switching ROMs. If it isn't the ROM< switching ROMs may not help.

    Do you have the "Franco Kernel Updater?" It's a paid app in the Play Store which I got to support the developer which gives you a control panel for the kernel. The voltage control is under CPU manager. Some ROMs (e.g.,Dirty Unicorns) will also provide Kernel controls. I don't actually know if there is another way. I'm pretty new to this myself. ;) Hopefully the more knowledgeable folks will pop up here.

    I use either OMNI ROM or Cataclysm with the latest franco kernel.

    I'd try using something other than Cyanogenmod, but keep in mind there are thousands of variable that can affect your battery life. Some of them are environmental, rather than software or hardware related.

    I'm on Vanir using ART. I've never had such great battery life.

    ART won't affect your battery life for the better (right now), just an FYI.
