    While I browse the web using 3G (with LTE turned off) on my iPhone 5, the battery drains pretty fast. I lose about 5 percent in about 10 minutes, give or take. The phone is jailbroken, but I have no tweaks from Cydia installed, apart from the default ones.

    I have turned off all the usual suspects like Location services for most apps, Frequent locations, Background app refresh, automatic downloads from iTunes Store, push e-mail, etc. I also keep brightness relatively low.

    Also, I have charged the phone properly, draining the battery all the way down and then charging it to 100% once every two weeks, on average.

    Does anyone have an idea why the battery drains so fast? I don't think that the jailbreak itself would cause this, especially as I have no tweaks installed but the default ones that come with Cydia.

    Any help is appreciated.

    P.S.: The phone is running iOS 7.0.6
