    So I'm pretty sure my battery problems has come after I Jb my I4. I'm debating on going back to stock. After all, I only have 3GU, SBSettings and 5 Icon dock installed and my battery is significantly worse than when it was stock. So I guess I'm taking a poll to see what you guys would do if you had battery problems after jbing?

    carry a battery charger. i would NOT give up anything i've jb'd for to get my better battery life back; i'm hoping instead to see a fix, ie something out of cydia that helps with battery draining faster since the jb...

    Jb doesn't effect my battery life at all.. I run sbsettings, bitesms, my3g, and MIM

    Same. I don't feel the negative effect of jailbreaking. I run Lockinfo, HTC Plugin for Lockinfo, SBSettings, Winterboard with nexus neuro live wallpaper on both lockscreen and homescreen, OpenSSH, BiteSMS, and I'm sure I forget a few.

    I don't feel much difference from before I jailbreak my iPhone. During a few of my tinkering sessions of about 2 hours each, battery has gone from 100% to around 75%. However, I think this is understandable as during the 2 hours of tinkering, I'm constantly downloading from Cydia or SSH, removing applications, and the countless restarting of the springboard while trying different tricks and combinations.

    On daily usage, I rarely drop into the 50% battery range by the end of the day.

    I've been trying to figure out what exactly causes the battery to drain so quickly so I restored to stock and set up as new.

    I then JB the phone but didn't open cydia. since doing this my battery has gone down 5% with only 25 minutes of very light usage and 1 hour 30 of standby. Bare in mind this is without even opening cydia for the first time so no other apps or extensions have been installed. I realise these stats aren't hugely bad but pre JB my battery would last much longer.
