    Hey guys, I have an interesting issue with my battery after jailbreak that i'm hoping someone else has experienced

    I'm noticing that my battery is draining at a quicker rate than usual (~1-2% every 7-10 min) when the screen is on and i'm using my phone. When the screen is off in standby, the battery drain is minimal

    anyone else notice this?

    You should just be worried about if you can make it a whole day or not. If you can't, you should look into your stats and see how much you are using your phone. For more accurate and easy-to-understand numbers, you should just give us the usage/standby times and the percentage remaining (whenever you recharge it back to 100%).

    To put it in context, 1%/10 mins = approx 16 hrs and 40 mins of battery time.

    If you can get over 16 hours of iphone USE, you're doing pretty well.

    i'll have the usage statistics tomorrow after i take if off the charger


    i erred in my original estimate though, its actually more like 1-2% every 4-5 minutes or so...is that still normal?

    I've search a lot of forum and jailbreak have nothing to do with battery drainage. This just started?

    I found this topic on :apple: about how we charged our phone can affect battery drain.

    Is it 1-2% drain ever 4/5 mins OF USE? Or standby?

    Because if it's of use, then we're still in 8-9 hours of use, which whilst not spectacular, I think is about right.
