Tips To Safeguard iPhone Battery Life After Jailbreaking It

How’s your iPhone battery doing? We’re hearing a mixed response after the jailbreak. Yesterday, we posted on Winterboard and battery issues associated with it. Today, we take a look at the overall impact of jailbreaking on the iPhone battery and also at some of the most useful tips that can help you save the juice.

Most people go on to test new tweaks, themes and NC widgets right after the jailbreak. And since we’ve all been waiting for a long time for the jailbreak, it’s quite normal that people jump on the bandwagon. The problem, however, is obvious: when you start testing, tweaking, theming and modding your iPhone, it will lose the battery.

Like we pointed out earlier, Apple didn’t design the iPhone to take the onslaught of a ton of themes or tweaks. So if your iPhone battery drains faster, you are not supposed to be alarmed. But if it does drain too fast, there are things you should do to plug the leak.

What Drains the Battery?
There are a few things that drain the Aspire 5100 Battery and then there are those that don’t. Let’s first make that distinction clear so you know what tweaks you can safely use and test all the time without impacting the APPLE A1185 battery.

Lockscreen widgets
Springboard mods
Notification Center widgets / mods
Tweaks like IntelliscreenX, LockInfo that are set to fetch data frequently
Themes that have a lot of add-ons
Apps that run in the background and use data/resources
That’s pretty much it. Let’s take a look at what doesn’t eat the ASUS A32-F5 battery:

Themes that just replace PNGs and icons.
Tweaks that don’t use any data (no refresh, no data fetching etc.)
Widgets that are set to fetch data in long intervals
Mods which don’t utilize the smartphone resources
If you think of tweaks like TorchNC or Kamera, they’re going to just sit there and do nothing till you trigger them. These don’t eat your apple battery.

But if you have, say, the Fifty Foot Shadows HD theme on your iPhone, you’re most likely to witness a rapid and alarming battery drain. This is because the way the theme actually uses the resources of the iPhone.

So how exactly do I save the battery?
