    The tweak is great and can hardly imagine going back from it but it's killing my battery very easily. 20% drop per hour seems about right.

    I'm going to test it out over the next day or so by removing the tweak.

    What experiences have any of you had with 'Accelerate'?

    If you combine all the threads and posts that claim to identified apps that kill the battery, then deleted them from all the repos, there'd be no apps installed by anyone.

    What I do know is Accelerate interferes with the BT Mouse and Trackpad app.

    I had only that installed on my iPod4 for a week and I noticed a hell of a battery drain compared to the tweak disabled.
    I thought it was the combo of a "slow/old" iPod4 playing music and "accelerating" at the same time that wasn't working good.

    While I can't say if it's conflicting with another tweak you have, I can tell you that I've dropped less than 6% an hour today over 6 hours usage on an iPad 1 running Accelerate at the "Even More Faster" setting. I'm pretty happy with that as it really isn't any greater drain than I saw before installing it.

    It's likely killing your battery because it's a poor ripoff of FakeClockUp and it messes with iOS' power save functions. It doesn't allow the CPU to sleep when the screen is off. Uninstall it and try using FakeClockUp instead.
