I get about 2 days off 1 charge, with heavy use and about 75% backlight doing the above.iPhone 5c - iOS 7.0.4 Jailbroken

That battery life sounds awesome, but I love tweaks like Barrel and Zephyr and I love having Mail on my phone. Porque no los dos?
Dude, I'm not even sure why you have an iPhone, it sounds like you could get exactly what you wanted out of a phone in a much cheaper and longer lasting model.

My phone was $150 lol. That's about as cheap as they come in Canada for anything decent. And if I can get away with getting an iPhone why not?iPhone 5c - iOS 7.0.4 Jailbroken

Multitasking I agree is overrated. Killing AppSwitcher is a good idea as is keeping Push off and location services until you need them. I get 14-18 hours+ with those changes.

I guess whatever works for you, power to you.
I just want a phone that CAN do all the things i want and last at least a day. That's all I want. Personally i need some sort of multitasking (man i miss pro switcher and backgrounder) because i get impatient and want to get lots of things done at once.

You know I still have mail and and mutitasking. Maybe I've made it sound like my phone is a hollow shell with lots of battery but it's not. I simply dont use ios mail cuz it sucks and is always running now matter what. So i ripped it out and use a 3rd party mail app that actually supports hotmail. I don't like heavy tweaks like barrel cuz they suck the life out of your phone are aren't needed at all. As far as the launch daemons are concerned im only disabling the ones you dont really need like spotlight, gamecenter and report daemons (all useless to me) And battsaver is just an app that saves battery by turning off your radios when they aren't actually being used. So I'm not really sure how that makes my iphone not an iphone lol I still do everything everyone else does just faster and with more life to do it, cuz theres not a bunch of pointless crap running on my phone to slow it down

I don't have the SHSH blobs cuz i got cocky and thought nothing bad would happen lol. Well it did. I put up a thread on a few forums explaining how easily crap happens for those who may not know. But essentially I installed a winterboard theme to remove the wallpaper gradient and it didn't play nice at all with my phone and bricked me up so I had to restore. Pretty crappy considering :PiPhone 5c - iOS 7.0.4 Jailbroken

If you had booted into safe mode, you may have been able to fix it... Too late now tho.

No problem, my guess would be something between 4 and 6 hours of usage and day and a half of stand by time. Anyhow charging will be finished in 47 minutes. I am using Battery doctor for this purpose, so see you in two days

Hmm. I may take part in this little experiment also. It will, at very least, be interesting to test out for my own benefit.

it's always best - every two week at a minimum to let your phone run down to under 9% and then do a full charge with BatteryDoctor showing on the screen - to make sure you get a 'cleansing full charge' for lack of a better term. Only after a FULL charge from below 9% to 100% will you get your best battery performance for testing..
Most of you won't be able to do battery testing if you ever respring your phone for having and changing themes. Since the iOS 6 jailbreak - every respring resets your battery stats to 0 - and won't track it for you. MADDENING bug for those of us who theme. If you don't have Winterboard or do any theming then you can test battery usage..
You can still test of course -- you just can't use any Respring function for the period of your test.
