Is this bad battery life?

    I use my iPhone for A LOT of things throughout my day. Such examples would be the multitude of alarms I have for myself, emails from my family and school clubs, texts from my bosses and school clubs, and such. As a result of this, I am very aware of my battery life and how fast or slow it drains. Recently I've been feeling as if my battery is draining faster, so I downloaded "Battery Detective" from Cydia. This is what is says in the "Battery Info" section:

    Temperature: 86.00F(30.00C)
    CurrentCapacity: 310 mAh (currently 25% on top right corner of screen)
    MaxCapacity: 1290mAh
    DesignCapacity: 1420mAh
    Battery Charge: 22.46%
    CycleCount: 145
    Voltage: 3873mV
    BootVoltage: 4070mV
    Drain: 448 mA
    Model: 003-S
    Serial: (Irrelevant)

    My question: is my "MaxCapacity" low for only 145 charge cycles, or does this seem normal?

    Also, if you guys would find it helpful, I can repost this information when my phone is done charging. I could see this being useful to see what this app says in "Battery Charge" when my phone officially says 100%. Plus, I can post up my usage statistics tomorrow night, as I deliberately drained it tonight so I could trickle charge it for a bit, as recommended by the App Store app "Battery Doctor".

    Thanks in advance!

    Since you have a jailbroken iPhone there's no telling what your battery life "should" be.

    also if u open crap load of background apps, your battery will surely drain out faster

    Jailbreaking my phone didn't affect battery life one bit.

    My phone's battery has been perfectly fine up until the last two weeks or so. I've been jailbroken on iOS 5.0.1 since it was possible, I think in January.

    Also, I rarely have any apps backgrounded. I'm very careful with that sort of stuff.
