  • 'Live Battery Indicator' Offers a New Style for Your Battery Level Indicator


    iOS comes with a function to show you the battery percentage as either a battery icon with a juice level indicator, or a battery icon with a juice level indicator and a battery percentage. If you like having both the battery icon with a juice level indicator and the battery percentage showing at the same time for the maximum amount of information, but hate the clutter, then try this.

    Live Battery Indicator is a new free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer pw5a29 that combines the idea of a battery icon with a juice level indicator and the battery percentage together into one icon. By combining the two, less space in the Status Bar is taken up by such a simple indicator.

    The icon basically shows the battery percentage in the center, without the percent sign. Surrounding the number is a circle that slowly opens up in a clockwise movement as the battery drains. It has a nice compact design and it gets the job done without cluttering up your Status Bar.

    Live Battery Indicator doesn’t come with any options to configure and you will find it for free in Cydia’s ModMyi repository if you'd like to give it a shot.

      That's exactly what CyanogenMod has. Looks the same as this tweak and it spins when your phone is charging.

      I'm glad you brought this up. Whoever it was a spoke to about this idea prior to its release; I (think) I told them to make a Winterboard theme to achieve the same results.

      The upside to using a theme instead of a dedicated tweak is that you can have a 'charging' effect. The downside, however, is installing Winterboard on older devices and the amount of RAM it consumes.

      Can we get that theme? I have a 4s so I think I'm good.

      Can't you tell from the cord that's coming out of the bottom? ;P but yeah, make the yellow while charging and green web fully charged. It would be nice!

      I can't seem to get it all the way to the right. My alarm icon and bluetooth icon keep showing up before it.

      The dev is working on it. Remember this is beta.

      Dont know if anyone else noticed this, but when you install it, it automatically adds the default round battery level, with the percentage inside, but if you activate the theme inside winterboard, itll change it to the regular battery indicator outline, with the percentage inside it.

      Id love for it to change color from green to yellow to orange to red based on the charge percentage, or at least to keep it always to the right, and have a charge indicator.

      Itd be awesome if they added some themes, but at that point youre looking for another app altogether.

      Thats by far the best tweak I have ever installed from Cydia.

      Thanks for sharing!

      Edit: I actually had BatteryDoctor without the Pro from the AppStore, same icon, not sure if the same developer.

      Like this but make it spinning. I made this quickly on PS but if i took the time i could make it spin with a gif. But I hope the dev gets the idea:
