Yes they do if you sit and look at them for long periods of time, but what is different about iOS than android is they stop when you turn the screen off and when you open an app.

In my opinion, no. I have been using it since 5.1.1 and I don't see any noticeable difference in battery life. Others, however, have claimed battery drain due to zephyr.

I'm in the same spot as you. Could you let us know how your battery life was without Zephyr. Also is your version pirated or paid for(not judging lol).

I've had it uninstalled for a couple days and am not seeing a difference.

AdBlocker
AdBlockerNetworks
CleverPin
DietBulletin
Dimmer
FullForce
iFile
MapsOpener
MuteIcon
MxTube
NCRam
NCSettings
Nitrous
Not-So-Smart
NowNow
PandoraSkips
PasswordPilot Pro
ProTube 2
RespringCacheFix
SpringFlash
Springtomize 2
SwipeShiftCaret
SwitcherCleaner
UnrestrictPremium
VolumeStep
WiFi Analyzer
xCon
YFiSelect 5.0+
I have noticed Springtomize 2 takes up a lot of battery, so i uninstalled that.

No, it isn't pirated. There is a noticeable battery drain. Although I think the % might be off. It isn't enough to delete

Well it looks like my problem was NCsetting. It looks like my iPhone 5 battery life is back. I am still running livepapers and it seems to be ok with that. Let you guys know if that changes.

I've been running NCSettings on 4S & 5 since evasion was out (on 6.1 and now 6.1.2), and I haven't experienced any drain at all on battery.
I even feel like battery improved since jailbroken.

Well my phone died right before I went to bed last night, so I plugged it up and removed NCsetting cause I heard someone on here say that it has worked for them. I only got about 5 1/2 hours of usage yesterday, and before the jailbreak I was getting close to 8. So after charging my iphone all night I started using it today and I am down to 90% with 1 hour usage. That would equal out to close to 8 hours if this continues. Now livepapers also updated yesterday, so the update could be doing the trick too. The only problem with that is I have been having battery issues since I jailbroke and NCsetting was on of the first apps I downloaded. It could just my phone, but I really do believe that was the problem.

Man that would be so disappointing if NCSettings really is a battery drain. Whenever the dev is asked about this, he always says that its unlikely because NCSettings only "loads" when the NC is pulled down (which makes sense). Outside of that, he said it shouldn't have any impact on the battery. But if its true that it drains the battery, well then that sucks badly. Hopefully he can fix it if this is the case.

LivePapers and IntelliScreen X will MURDER your battery, especially together.

Well I am still checking cause after my 10% drain this morning now my iPhone is back to drain for no good reason. I guess my next try is going to be winterboard. I really hate to loss some of the cool things that winterboard offers, but if it ends up being the problem then I will cut my losses.

I'm afraid of Winterboard. I really want the Jaku theme, but I'm afraid.

How will intelliscreen x drain battery if I have all the feeds turn off? I don't have Facebook, twitter, or RSS feed synced. All it does now is allow me to answer messages.

It doesn't. The drain comes with the feeds. I just run the RSS feed and have no noticeable battery drain compared to no ISX. I'm thinking the Twitter feed drains the most, then FB. Not sure how bad the mail is - I've never used it.

Although its crap-ton of launch daemons makes my boot times horrid. Thank god i'm on an untether

My battery is amazing. Ncsettings was the first thing I installed, no battery issues. I think it might be zephyr in my case. That's all I have.

I currently use Springtomize 2 for a couple of things. One is to remove the carrier name and another is to blur the notification center.

My question is am I better off, battery wise, to use Springtomize for these two things or to use something like No Carrier Name and FastBlurredNotificationCenter.
