    I installed infindock and overflow and can now watch my battery life fall... I can't imagine these are that heavy of apps?

    Anyone? I'm losing 1% every 2 min now. Those are the only apps I downloaded.

    I have both those as well and my battery is atrocious. I wasn't sure what the cause was because I do have a few others installed.

    Uninstalling both lol That is the only way I fixed my battery issues. These tweaks were the reason I jailbroke, so I was a little bummed, but there are so many other great tweaks out there that don't make your battery life suffer! If anyone finds a fix please post though :)

    Trust me I wasn't pleased either lol I just couldn't find a good combo of tweaks to relieve the battery... Better battery > #1 tweak for me IMHO. If they find a fix then I will install right away, but I need my battery to last as I haven't had any of the "battery issues" since the 4S launch and don't wanna start because of a tweak not playing nice..

    Definitely agree. I'm gonna remove overflow first and see if that helps before removing infinidock.

    Yeah that's a good idea, for all I know it was "overflow" that was the battery culprit... Let me know what you find out!

    I think it is overflow, and not infindock. I disabled overlfow and my battery is a little better.

    ScrollingBoard works without causing the battery issues. I was wondering as well.. noticed today that battery was 50% after lunch with light use and a full charge last nite. I hate to let go of overflow, it's the shizzizle.
