How much time are you guys getting on your Iphone 6 (no plus) with ios 8.1 jailbreak?

I just bought my phone yesterday and got 3 hours of usage + 10h of standby before dropping to 50%.. which isn't that good compared to what others are getting (10h and more + standby!!).

It reduces some, but mainly because lots of tweaks = lots of background activity that didn't exist before. Don't think it's the actual jailbreak, but tweaks that reduce the battery life.

On a 6+ you shouldn't see much of a difference with a few tweaks running. There are tweaks to extend battery life also so it will balance out. On older devices it's noticeable.

I don't think he has a 6+. What tweaks extend battery life?

I've got a ton of tweaks and haven't noticed any crazy amount of batter drainage on my 6+ 64 GB. The battery on this thing is amazing.

I tend to believe battery life improves with usage. I remember thinking both my devices 6/6+ were dropping too fast when I bought them, and after about a week it seemed they were lasting much longer. Maybe it's battery calibration. Not sure.

I don't know what kind of sorcery this is.. But that batt saver thing really is giving me literally 2-3x battery life :eek:

Battsaver disables LTE and Wifi when you lock the device and automatically turns it back on when you unlock your device. Also can change settings so it checks for background notifications every 10 mins.

I think so too... Especially since I installed little brother and used it in the small zoom mode... Although I've deleted the tweak itself, my phone still seems to drain faster... I might try a fresh install and see if there's a change...

Or maybe I'm just paranoid (not really)...

My battery still lasts me a long time on my 6+

I don't have a lot of unnecessary tweaks. Just things that are needed.

Great, but this would be a bad thing when using your iPhone as a hot spot.

hmm, I purchased Battsaver too but feel like it hasn't made much difference at all. :/

My 5S is chewing threw the battery in a big way... probably about half the time I used to get with 7.1.2

Trying to figure it out with the battery diagnostics, but I'm not having luck so far.

Tried BattSaver, didn't do much for me... broke iMessage for a while, and wifi connectivity for a while.

Uninstalled... uninstalled just about every other tweak, and I'm still chewing through battery. Battery stats don't tell me much of anything.

Sigh.
