    Hi there, lately I have noticed my iPhone 4S (on 5.0.1) battery has been dying a lot quicker. I can barely get out 2~ hours of usage and 8~ hours standby.

    I am jailbroken and here are my packages:
    OmniStat for NotificationCenter
    Pull To Refresh Safari
    Springtomize 2
    WeeFlashlight for NotificationCenter
    WeeKillBackground for NotificationCenter

    I have 4 email accounts set up on my phone, 3 are set to fetch every 15 mins. and one is set at push. I have iCloud setup for Daily Backup and to sync Reminders, Calendars, Mail, etc.

    I have tried to remove all my Mail accounts and re-add them but there was no difference. I have iMessage activated.

    In terms of Push Notifications, I have one app that sends me them frequently: ScoreMobile, it sends alerts of sports teams I follow when something important happens. Previously I was able to have ScoreMobile push on 24/7 and my battery would be perfectly fine.

    In terms of charging, I usually let the phone die before I charge it and I charge it to 100%, sometimes I charge it overnight for around 8 hours.

    Does anyone have any tips for me?

    You have a jailbroken phone. That pretty much throws out the book on standard battery life. Who knows what it could be.

    The first thing I'd look at is what's running in the background and kill any app you're not actively using then see how your results are. Disable WiFi temporarily to see if it improves anything. When it's on, it's constantly trying to find Access Points to connect to.

    My JB phone has incredible battery life when it's in Airplane mode while I was overseas where my Sprint phone would not work (being that it's CDMA and the area I was at only has GSM networks) so doing so turned it into an iPod Touch essentially and I used WiFi instead, easily did 8 hours no problem.
