    Default 'BatteryLife' Shows You Useful Battery Information in a Neat-looking Interface


    For those of you that are like hawks when it comes to watching your iOS device's battery life with every change that you make, there's a handy new application in Cydia called BatteryLife by iOS developer rbt available that gives you a whole bunch of useful information in a pretty little iOS 7-esque interface.

    Shown above, the application is very polished-looking, and it's very simple too. The application shows you the following useful information:

    • Battery Charge Percent (based on mAh)
    • Capacity (based on mAh)
    • Voltage (based on mV)
    • Amount of Charge Cycles
    • Current Battery Temperature (your choice of C or F)
    • Current Charging State
    • Maximum Amount of Charger Current (in mA)
    • Amount of Discharge Current (in mA)

    The information is beautifully delivered in a simplistic interface, and is updated every 20 seconds to be current with the device as you use the application. If you're unsure of what something means, you can tap on the little "i" information button to the left of the item to get a detailed explanation of what the item stands for. From the settings button at the top of the application, you can switch between C or F for battery temperature.

    This application will be handy in letting you know whether or not your battery is performing as expected, and if you suspect you're experiencing a faulty battery, this application will certainly be the tool to help you find out if you need a new one.

    If you want to give BatteryLife a try, it's available for free in Cydia's ModMyi repository. The application is only for iOS 7 devices, and works with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

    Looks interesting. It would seem the "discharge current" setting may be a good way to troubleshoot if a JB tweak is causing a significant drain on the battery.

    Tweaks like this can drain battery too

    just installed and read "updates every 20 to 30 seconds" Hmm may uninstall later if I see battery dropping faster

    Uninstalled because battery dropped to 95% from 100 within 2 minutes and when my device resprung it was back up to 99% charge? I'm not sure about this tweak

    I'm sure the 20 to 30 seconds is only when the app is running. I've had battery issues ever since I went to 7.0.4 & seeing how my battery is somehow at about 50% capacity now is annoying. My 3GS last 3 years with the same battery & was at 75% capacity at the end of its run.

    Inform Me is way better than this tweak.

    Does InformMe provide # of battery cycles? Description said it provides battery percentage.
