    check your update intervals. Might want to turn those off altogether. Also check to see if how long your phone is in "keep awake", could be a deep sleep issues with a conflicting app.

    ^ This

    Plus, what I have done is limit myself to three homescreens (not sure if this actually DOES anything, tho), two widgets, turn off 4G and GPS unless actually using them, and turn down your screen brightness.

    Also, I have read that the FB app really sucks the juice and many people are uninstalling it.

    You can do that too, but try actually addressing the problem, not covering it up.

    Turn off auto app updates from the Play Store, reduce weather update interval (if you have one), turn off 4G unless actually using it, use wifi as much as possible, turn off GPS unless actually using it, reduce the number of home screens, reduce the number of widgets, turn down screen brightness, reduce the time until your screen turns off, and uninstall the FB app and install Friendcaster.

    If you want to see exactly what is using your battery then dl Badass Battey Monitor

    Try all of that before you get one of Franco's kernals (which are awesome)

    Here you go.

    Franco and others just tweak the kernel in order to get better overall performance or to optimize battery consumption.

    the kernel that comes with aokp works very well. I mean it may have alot to do with your battery drain, but I got a feeling it could be a rogue app or just your regular apps not closing out of them properly. I ran aokp and got great battery life. I'm currently on a JB ROM and the battery life is amazing, barely drains the past couple hours and I've sent maybe 30 text messages and played a bit of scramble with friends.

    I'm still stock but this works for me. I get about 12-15 hrs uptime from each battery (usually about 2hrs screen on time and 2-3hours of music).

    I created a widget using Elixer 2... I have other functions on it but the battery saver for me is turning off mobile data with a toggle. I turn off my data when I'm not using the phone. I still get texts and calls as they come in. When I get home I pop onto the wifi network. I don't actually use less data but my phones not trying to stay synced up all day but that's fine when I'm at work. I just turn on data throughout the day when I want it.
