    Is this normal? I've experienced a crazy drain, like a 1% drain every minute. Has anyone else noticed an increased battery drain after Jailbreaking? Please help me out :) thank you!

    It would help us if you tell what tweaks you have installed;)

    It's not the jailbreak, but a tweak you installed.

    That's crazy. I've had three iphones, all of which I jb'ed multiple times and I never noticed a sliver of difference between stock and jb in terms of battery life. I'd go as far as to say that 8.4 does better than 8.1.2 on my 5S in that regard.

    Check general>usage>battery to see what uses the most power. Install batterylife from cydia to check if your battery isn't dying.

    okay, i went to my general>usage>batteryusage. in the last 24 hours snapchat has used the most battery(37%) right after that whatsapp(21%) then Home lock screen(14%) then musicaudio (9%) then FacebookBackgound Activity(7%) the rest is just other small apps that have used >2% in the last 24 hours.

    BTW. I also have a 5S so the battery life should be identical to yours. Wierd... I hope i can get this fixed soon because i really wanna enjoy the awesome tweaks and general cydia stuff!!!
