    Default Custom ROM battery life variability

    S'up guys.

    I've got a Nexus 4 and found that the battery life on the stock ROM was pretty crap so I installed SlimKat and on average will get about 14 hours with average use.

    Every now and then I have a day where it'll last for 24 hours or more (again with average use).

    Take yesterday for example when I disconnected it from the main at about 5am, haven't charged it since and am now on 9%

    What's up with that?

    That's great! It may be due to the fact that 1. SlimKat has a custom Kernel built into the ROM and 2. SlimKat is lighter on resources then the stock ROM of the Nexus 4. Either way, that's a good thing.

    It is indeed however it doesn't happen all the time but every now and then which is why I'm confused.
