    Hey All,

    Just newly jailbroken and I'm wondering ifs tweaks are messing up with my phone or if its delusionment.

    How many % does your battery life drop per hour when it's locked and not use? I'm getting a battery drain of roughly 2% every hour:S No push email or anything.

    Thanks!

    You're overreacting! 2% per hour is perfectly normal, in fact it's quite good. :D

    My iPhone 5 is jailbroken and it uses about 5% an hour on standby.

    Your tweaks arent wasting your battery at all in my opinion.

    Yikes! 5% an hour would give you 20 hours on standby max. How.. How can you live like this?! Lol.

    Haha, I charge my phone every night regardless of it's charge, and I'm often by a computer, so I plug it in whenever I can.

    My battery life never seems to be a problem for me! :D

    i wish i could adopt your way of thinking. i was just really hoping to use a phone that could last me all day with decent usage because at this rate, we're getting standby times that are 10% of advertised rates. gulp! haha.

    With iOS 6, jailbroken or not, one of the most complained about problems has been the random loss of battery percentage. It has said to work to simply do a reboot of your device. Turn it completely off and back on and it has said to work wonders? It has never happened to me but it's what i've read.
    Hope it works out for you!
