    Apparently customizing a JailBroken iPhone doesn't come cheap, at least battery consumption wise.. I'm wondering if anyone noticed extreme drop in battery life after full charge using any of the mentioned tweaks, personally i stay away from everything that includes live animations, increase the update interval of weather stuff and try as much as i can to avoid on-screen widgets unless i find a widget properly done. So the question is those who use HTML LockScreen + iWidgets, is it worth it? and did you notice any impact on battery life?

    I have 40 or so tweaks, two of which are iWidgets and LockHTML.

    LivePapers, an animated iWidget, Dashboard X with the Forecast tweak on my lock and homescreens, weather updating every 15 mins and no issues with battery.

    But I also have Smart 3G+LTE installed which automatically shuts off my cellular data and radio and turns on WiFi when I enter a WiFi network (and does the reverse when I leave).
