    I am just wondering whether people are noticing reduced battery life after the Jailbreak. I have a iPhone 4. I am certainly noticing it. I did the full charge this morning at 7:30am. I had a normal day, a couple of phone calls, facebook, emails and browsing. I was down to less than 20% around 9:30pm.

    I am using, SBSettings, Zephyr and Weekillbackground Pro.

    These threads appear after every jb. Some do, some don't. Is it the jb or simply increased used of the phone due to new jb apps. No one knows.

    It's impossible for me to judge, since I'm re-downloading a lot of my themes and trying things out, so I'm respringing a lot, and that drains battery pretty hard.

    The jailbreak has affected my battery life heavily. And the only tweak I have installed is NCsettings. I went from 100% charge to 55% in just three hours, with minimal usage.

    I'll be restoring my phone in the morning to get rid of the JB.

    sounds like my battery before the jailbreak when on LTE


    Personally, I see no difference.

    iPhone 4S here, I've noticed heavier battery usage, and I suspect one of my tweaks has a memory leak, as I get crashes to safe mode every now and then.

    That being said, I'm also using the phone more at the moment, so I'll require more data before I have any strong opinions.

    If you're on cydia a lot it really hammers the battery. See how the battery is for a day with out cydia. It's harder than you think. :)

    Battery life doesnt seem any worse on my 4S. In fact, it seems better coming from 5.1.1.

    I understand exactly what you are saying and Im having the same problem but an extreme case of my battery decreasing and I've done a complete restore on my iPhone 4 and literally all I have done is reinstalled applied the evasi0n v1.1 jailbreak and no problems so far. After the jailbreak i unplugged my phone and it was on 97% But as soon as I clicked Cydia for the first time it did a quick restart and the battery percentage jumped to 100% and since starting this post it dropped from 96% to 92% and will decrease further by the time I post so I believe the problem to be with Cydia itself because before evasi0ns jailbreak I was running redsn0w on iOS 6.0 tethered and it had no problems so I'm going to restore go back to redsn0w jailbreak and see if the problem persists. Hope this post can help resolve this issue I will also post this on evasi0n's forum also as its more likely to be resolved if the problem is reported to the actual developer.

    I have had great battery life since the JB. I usually unplug the phone at 6:00am and plug back at 10:00pm with 25% to 30% left with heavy usage (lots of reeder, Cydia checking, tapatalk, messaging, Instagram and email). I have installed Auxo, NCsettings, Activator, Aptdate, AppUpdateNotify, BrowserChange and biteSMS.

    My battery life is brutal now. It was great when it was just JB'd with only BiteSMS installed. It seems like SBSettings is affecting battery life greatly for me. Or Springtomize 2. Those were the only two I installed before my battery went to hell. It hasn't gotten better or worse since installing Zephyr, Nitrous, IntelliScreenX, Auxo, or Dashboard.

    Although likely a placebo, my battery life on my iPhone 5 actually seems noticeably better after jailbreaking with 1.1 envasi0n.

    I noticed a slight (very slight) drain after installing zephyr. But before that install (with only tetherme and NCSettings installed) battery life was excellent (same, if not better than before jailbreak).

    After zephyr I noticed it draining a little faster, but it could be something else like cydia running so much.

    It's back to normal after one charge. Roughly normal. I'll keep an eye on it.

    There is one thing that is certainly abnormal after jailbreak:

    I noticed that resprings change the battery percentage. Before a respring, it showed 97%. After the respring, it showed 100%.

    Don't know what it means, but definitely never seen that before jailbreak as there were no resprings back then.

    honestly this is one of the best jailbreaks out to date clean and works great. my guess you are enjoying the jailbreak much more and using your phone more. like others said we always see these post..

    i've used batterydetective and compared my IP4 with 5.1.1 and my IP4S with 6.1 with almost the same tweaks on both

    about 200 mA on both not a big difference between them
