Anyone notice battery being worse after jailbreaking?

I havent because I literally just jailbroke last night, but was wondering since the 4S has had complaints with bad battery life stock, do you think jailbreaking will have ill effects on battery life?

My battery life is exactly the same. Jailbreaking in itself doesn't affect battery life in any way, it's all in the tweaks you install.

Mine is probably down an hour or two from what regular performance was. I took it off the charger at 6am cst and it's now at 80%. I've been in class since 8am and haven't really used it that much.

My 4S battery life seems just as good as before the jailbreak

Installed apps:
SBSetttings (I love that I can use this in the notification center!!)
Winterboard (though the only thing enabled is remove app labels)
Fullscreen Safari
Pandora Skip
5 icon dock
Siri Toggles
FakeClockUp

All jailbreaking does is to give you admin rights on your phone. thats it. it doesn't do anything else. its the stuff you install from cydia that determines how your phone reacts. just like having admin rights on your pc/mac doesn't do anything.
