    For those who know what this app, simply just post your Max Capacity, and Design Capacity.

    For those who don't know, this app tells you your exact battery level (in mAh), how many charge cycles you've been through, temperature, etc. I used this application on my old iPhone 4, and my results were horrible.


    I am not a heavy user of my phone, and yet I get a terrible reporting.
    Max Capacity: 1258
    Design Capacity: 1420
    Charge Cycles 93

    So basically at a full charge, my battery would statistically be at around 85-88%, which is bad. 85% should be the amount of a phone that has gone through at least 300 charge cycles. So I took it in for a replacement, and now I am very happy...

    Max Capacity: 1433
    Design Capacity: 1420
    Cycle Count 52

    This is spectacular. After a few cycles the mAh actually increased. 1436 peak. I do not see as much drain as I did on the old phone as well, meaning I had a dud. But this is more than perfect!

    So I'm curious to how everyone else's battery is holding up.
    If you don't post a pic, just post these vital statistics:
    1. Max Capacity
    2. Design Capactiy
    3. Cycle Count.

    "BatteryInfoLite" should already be in Cydia without any additional repositories, and is MobileSubstrate-less app as well.

    Max Capacity: 1415 mAh
    Design Capcity: 1420 mAh
    Cycle Count: 3
    is that ok or should i worry?

    Interesting--thanks for the rec on this one, I hadn't been able to find a free app that included the number of charging cycles.

    iphone 4

    max - 1327

    design - 1420

    202 cycles

    :( at 99% battery, but this says i'm at 91%...so i guess i have 10% less battery than designed.

    Interesting. I wonder why yours shows 87% in the app and 100% in the status bar? I would assume that shows the actual difference in what's reported by the phone and what the actual percentage is on the battery?

    In other words, after using your phone for almost 2 years, when your phone is saying it's 100% charged, it's actually at 87%? That's nuts. I never thought about that, but it makes sense that batteries don't last forever.

    Pretty eye-opening stuff here.

    Actually, that's basically within spec. At least for the iPhone 4, battery life per Apple should be within 10-15% of original capacity after 400 charging cycles (about 2 years for most folks). Pretty sure it was similar for the 3GS.

    My results

    Hi there.

    My iphone 4 is relatively new (3 months) and its battery is draining too fast. After trying everything, including updating from 4.3.3 to 5.0 I got the batteryinfo lite app and here are my results:

    Max Capacity: 1404 mAh
    Design Capacity: 1420 mAh
    Battery Charge: 98.87% (while plugged-in and fully charged)
    Cycle Count: 84

    Do you think I should worry? Should I return it to service (it's still in the warranty period, I think).

    I will appreciate a swift reply.
    Thank you! Have a nice day.

    My iPhone 4 is at 1398, and it's over a year old. Pretty sure that's more than normal. Your battery will slowly die over time, it's drastic drops that you worry about.
    Though I'm wondering if drains of more than 10%, are able to be trained back a bit higher, or the only fix is a new battery?

    I'd like to see info on my 4S.. Which there was an app store app for this

    On my JB 3GS I show :
    Max: 1119mAh
    Design: 1200mAh
    Cycle Count: 268

    The the phone showing 59% the app shows 53%..

    Edit: yikes, didn't realize this thread was almost 5 months old before today. Eh, it's neat info nonetheless

    It isn't bad, likely it's reading it wrong for that cycle count to be that low. Try doing a monthly decharging, getting it below 20% then letting it fully charge. Try an app like BatteryDoctor, to do a trickle charge for the monthly charge.
    After that, just keep charging it around 80% and don't let it drop to low. After less than a week, it usually read properly. My phone died a few times, and it read 1260 prior to doing the above.

    That's not bad for a 3Gs, how old is it?

    Yeah, not bad, my cycle count is 382. I got mine on release.

    ummm, idk exactly. At least a year. It was my moms, and she bought it as a refurb from AT&T. I upgraded to the 4S, she got my 4, so I took her 3GS to play with JB'ing..

    Is that means my battery at bad condition?
    Can replace it if i still under warranty?

    Oct 14, 2008
    Yep, better than mine. Mine is 1230-1255mAh, I've around 320-330 cycles.

    Is this bad? I bought it from a friend, but he always treated it well...

    Bought in July 2010. There are no apple stores in Belgium, they are distributed by 1 of 3 mobile operators...

    Should I bring it back? Apple only gives 1 year guarantee but our legal guarantee is 2 years.

    Few interesting things about my 4S..

    Seems that unless I do a complete cycle every few days my max capacity drops to about 1360 or lower (out of 1430 design capacity). With two consecutive full drains/charges I'm up to 1412.

    Another things is that I noticed my phone lasts on 1% for ~30mins under the same conditions as the previous 4% (screen on 80% w/ auto-lock off, wifi and 3G on, same 10 apps in the background) which drained 1% every 2mins. Just strange how it fluctuates so much.

    I saw discussions about how the thermometer / temperature apps can't be made since the iphone doesn't have a temp sensor. The apps in AppStore are only measuring outside temps using the internet.

    Well it seems the iphone does have a temp sensor and it's pretty accurate with this app. I compared with a real thermometer. Of course you will only get the temperature of your room if your iphone was on standby otherwise the heat of the phone would influence the sensor.
