This is a kernel issue. Same effect with all kernel?

I used the software suitable for the battery (battery monitor widget pro). How can I provide you with information related to the battery?
I think I have a battery problem because I went from 70% to 1% very quickly.
Also I read on another forum that a new version improves the battery.
I put the link http://pan.baidu.com/s/1kTzHJkr
I'm happily using your ROM and it works perfectly fine for me (besides battery drain) - according to statements in other forums like Freaktab there is already a new version of the official PIPO P8 ROM available (Pipo firmware dated 11/6/14 #177).
Any chance to get a new version of your ROM based on that version ?
Thanks a million !

post below is obsolet in the meantime as I went ahead in a try-and error approach and I have just installed the new kernel - perfect ! My P8 works even better - the smoothness increased to what I can tell so far with kernel #177. Battery drain I can't tell that much s it is still charging.
Perfect - thanks, Oma!
Regarding installation of the kernel: do I need to
- install just the new kernel with RKAndroidTool or
- install the new kernel with the loader with RKAndroidTool or
- install the whole ROM including the new kernel?
Thanks for your support!
I have stock ROM but I noticed horizontal scroll is laggy. It slows down every centimeter when I scroll horizontally. I tested it with drawing app and when I draw parallel lines it draws zig-zag lines and it looks like the screenshot. It seems like touch has vertical bands with different response. Anyone has the same problem?
In the meantime I have figured out the root cause of the battery drain: it is the UltraStick modem with causes the higher consumption.
It was already factory installed an as soon as I have taken out the stick, the P8 was able to enter deep sleep mode.
The following users say thank you to avant for this useful post:Oma7144
Interesting finding. Thanks for feedback.

Hooray - A new version of the ROM has been released as follows :
New kernel #194 preempt 01.12.2014: http://crewrktablets.arctablet.com/?wpfb_dl=2287

Thanks Oma !
I do have the following issues with the ROM as follows (kernel #177 *and* #194):
- the app Magine freezes after some minutes (not seen on other tablets/smartphones in the same wlan)
- last but not least - the P8 does not wake up from deep sleep and needs reboot
Thanks again !
EDIT: I am still wondering, if 5GHz WLAN is implemented at all as announced. I don't see any 5GHz WLAN compared to my other 5GHz WLAN devices ...
Deep sleep issues are always kernel/hardware related. Wifi depends on the wifi chip. Let me have a dmesg log.
