    What kernals are you guys using to improve battery life? I heard the Matr1x kernal is a good one.

    I'm running Franco nothing but good things from him. Used it on my Gnex and on my Mako, if you decide to use his, he has an app in the play store.

    I'm also using faux and aokp nightly. I'm over 20 hours easy on battery.

    Franco. Been using his kernel since my Nexus S. I've tried others, but always go back to his.

    Just booted Franco's latest. Been getting 4+ hours Screen On Time easy (21 hrs total use) on previous builds, and can even hit 6 hrs if I deplete the battery completely. Makes me sad his talents are restricted to a handful of devices (mainly Nexi).

    I just installed his newest one, r20. When it was installing it said something about installing a virus. Now I'm assuming it's a joke. Has he always done that? Anyways I'm on stock and haven't had it long enough to notice anything.

    I'm using twrp and the newest kernel r20 if that matters. Install that one and see what it says. It definitely said it.

    I have used a few kernels and have found Motley's kernel has the best battery life so far: [KERNEL][motley 2012-12-25] GPL*Linaro*SIO*UV*304MHz*FastChg (+exp build) - xda-developers

    So many devs love to joke. AOKP, Franco, etc. It's interesting but weird at the same time. Anyway, +1 on Franco r21. I was on stock rom stock kernel ever since launch. Performance was great and battery life was miserable. I am now on stock rom franco kernel r21. Performance seems even better and battery life improved dramatically. So yes, stock rom is fine, but please at least try out r21.

    I'm on that right now, I have noticed improved battery time and no hit on performance or anything else. I'm considering trying Franco's though since everybody here mentions it, wonder if it's best to re-calibrate the battery when you keep ROMs but stitch kernels?

    What are the main differences between Faux and Franco? I haven't explored different kernels yet since AOKP runs fine as is, but I'd like better battery and/or performance if possible.
