I work 12 hour shifts and before jailbreak, my phone would last throughout the entire day, but now...I have to start charging it by the mid-point of my shift. I read a little bit about this issue and looks like it all points to restoring to factory and not by previous backup is the solution.

Anyone know another way around this before I restore? Thanks for your help!

Just be careful what tweaks you have installed, a few them might be running in the background and killing your battery. Personally I don't install or use any tweaks that run in the background.

And also if I were you I'd restore before it's too late.

I still get the same usage time I did before I jailbroke.

So it's to my understanding...any tweak that runs in the background can be found by double tapping the home key on my iPhone? Or do some tweaks run differently than the actual apps?

Check your processor load after you install any tweak, so you know which one gives you a problem.
Same here, same usage even after jailbreak and couple tweaks installed like bitesms, videopane, sistem tweak, lockscreen tweak, ifile. Even with all eye candy turned on and using dynamic wallpaper, which is 4 hours usage mostly on wifi still at 55-60%.

BigBoss Icon Set
DockShift
f.lux
Flat7 Theme

Sounds like WinterBoard is the culprit.

I ran winter board for one day and it was chewing through my battery.

WinterBoard is not updated for ios 7 and that could be an issue.

Thanks. But what about Pandora Downloader? I have that tweak from the Sinful Repo which is not updated for ios7 yet. Or am I just beating a dead horse?

Pandora downloader works for you? I might download it, any bugs?

I agree and as I said it uses a 'little' more battery due to it accessing location services.

It is a great tweak.

f.lux is probably a big killer, turn it off when you dont want the screen temperature changed
I jailbreak specifically for F.lux and I haven't installed anything else. I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and I haven't observed a change in battery life.

you can always run the top command in mobileterminal (install top and mobileterminal from cydia)

running "top -u" should organize running processes by most to least

my iphone 5 battery life couldnt be better. i actually had a huge fit over how bad ios 7 battery life was in general but it really settled in with a clean install and no restore from backup.

Forgive my ignorance, but I still don't understand what it does.
It changes the color temperature of the screen to match the sunlight based on the time of day, so in the evening, it takes on a yellow/orange tint that is much easier on your eyes and it also doesn't keep you awake as much if you are on your phone before bed.
