    Default Battery Normal? (GSAM)

    These are my battery stats. Usually when i'm idle without wifi or data on, i get about 1% drained every hour. With screen on without those on about 1% every 20-40min. With wifi on, i lose 1% every 2-4 minutes. I don't use data at all and only use wifi. Can you guys help me with this problem? I'm rooted with cm11 4.4.2 with their kernal. sgh-t999.

    Thanks!

    The cause is most likely your mobile signal. Cell phones will kill themselves to maintain any kind of signal no matter how weak.

    Also, make sure you don't have the screen brightness to Full or Automatic. Keep it conservative - I have mine (Nexus 5) to less than 50% and find it acceptable. Also, make sure you set WiFi to always on during sleep (settings > wifi > menu > advanced).

    For more battery saving tips take a look at the guide B. Diddy put together, it's worth a look and will help you extend the life of your battery: [Guide] Battery Saving Tips

    To troubleshoot. I would unplug the internet from your router. Connect and see if your battery still dies. If so then it's a connection issue with your router and phone. If not then it could be an issue with a data-using app.

    Well it doesn't matter if i have full wifi bars or 1. either way, it drains. But i'm going to try unplugging my router see if that helps.

    EDIT: it didn't do anything to help. But, i was wondering what these settings do?
