Cydia tweaks - battery drain?

Hello. My phone's battery is draining a lot quicker then it did before jailbreaking (albiet, i have downloaded a ton of cydia tweaks)

I'm going to list the tweaks I have here - can you tell me which ones use the most power?


Cydelete
Intelliscreenx (beta)
Multiiconmover
Nowlistening
Cameralocker
Zoomisback!
Weesearch
Music Center
Bolt
Springflash
Fast Copy
iPicMyContacts
Winterboard
Folder Enhancer
AsktoCall
CallBar
BiteSMS (beta)
Killbackground
Appscenter
Activator
Calendar for Notification Center
Cleanup
Gridlock
Quicknote for notification center
semitether
startdial

Sorry they're not in alphabetical order. If you could tell me which ones use the most memory/power, I'll take them off and hopefully my phone's battery will last longer.

Thanks!

From what i know none of these tweaks drain battery, what can be shorting your battery life is IOS 5 it has been reported to shorten battery life there are several fixes for it.

It's not iOS 5 because I jailbroke my phone 2 weeks after i updated to iOS 5 and the battery problem started after jailbreaking.

1st thread bumping isn't allowed here. if anything add something meaning to your bump. 2nd the best way to tweek if you suspect something is uninstall one app at a time and see if it makes a difference. IE some have reported issues with winterboard others have not. So try uninstalling it. Also try recalibrating your battery.
