Your ioreg image looks as expected.
battery life still bad, my CPU idling at 2.4w, I saw other people with the same CPU can idle at 1.8w. and I don't see DRAM on Intel Power Gadget

No "Problem Reporting" files attached.
Read FAQ, "Problem Reporting" again. Carefully. Attach all requested files/output.
Use the gen_debug.sh tool mentioned in the FAQ, that way it is less likely you'll omit something.

Check to see if something is using CPU resources with Activity Monitor.
Perhaps you have VoodooI2C in polling mode instead of interrupt mode.

Further discussion here is off-topic (your problem is not with CPU PM, but rather something using CPU resources).

CPU usage seems fine

Hi RehabMan,

I would like your advice regarding power management. I got my hackintosh laptop working almost perfectly, except the power management.
I followed the steps in this guide, also disabled Nvidia GPU to save battery power, but I still can't seem to get the same (or similar) battery hours as in Win10.

The problem is that my battery lasts only about 70 minutes on Hackintosh (Mojave 10.14.2), but about 4-5 hours while using Win10 in power-saving mode.

Could you please take a look at my problem reporting files and advise? I can't seem to find the culprit.

Thank you,
Petr

NVMe runs without PM on macOS. Replace with M.2 SATA device.
Your USB configuration is not correct (refer to guides linked from FAQ).
Remove all extra/unneeded software (start with fresh install).
