'CCFakeLowBattery' Lets You Fake a Low Battery Percentage on Demand
If by any chance, you've got someone text messaging you and won't let you go, and you need a quick excuse to stop text-messaging them, this new add-on for Control Center called CCFakeLowBattery by iOS developer Johnny Chian might come in handy.
This add-on ultimately gives you a simple toggle for Control Center that can make it look like you have very little battery remaining. That way, if you find yourself in the text-message scenario described above, you can even take a screenshot of your so-called "low battery" to show tot the person, and you won't have to feel as bad making up an excuse to put the phone down.
The new toggle button shows up in the Control Center window below:
Because this is an add-on that depends on the CCToggles platform, you'll need to visit the CCToggles preferences pane in the Settings application after installing the tweak and drag it to the "Enabled Toggles" section:
After you do that, you should head over to the CCFakeLowBattery preferences pane in the Settings application to choose the battery percent that you want your Status Bar battery icon to show when you toggle the tweak:
Notably, if you have "Battery Percentage" enabled, this tweak will also change the battery percentage, and not only change the icon. If you have 100% battery, and a full-green battery icon, you can use this tweak to make your Status Bar show not only a nearly-empty red battery icon, but also the 100% indicator will show the battery percentage you've configured instead.
This tweak seems to work rather well, and the implementation is very easy to use. If you want to give it a try, it's available for free in Cydia's BigBoss repository. It does require that you have an iOS 7 device to be used.
Requirements: iSO 7.0-7.0.5
Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 7.0.4

Wow is this a real problem people have? maybe just don't text back or save a screenshot of your low battery screen and use it on demand? I'm just really racking my brain first why someone would create this or why any one would use it. I may lose sleep tonight thinking about this one.

Do texters demand proof that your battery is dying before they'll let you go? I just tell people I'm being robbed and have a gun to my head when I need to duck out of a heavy texting session.

I do agree, though, in just not responding.

I agree, people that annoy me with excessive texting I just end up not responding to. They seem to get the hint that way. Are you supposed to be afraid of hurting the other persons feelings if you just shut down texting them or something? Seems pretty petty just quietly..

Relax people, we can deduce not *everyone* has much need for this tweak or think it simply sucks, well that's only for you, for me, this is absolute gold! I go to school where everyone loves to play on my phone and I easily give in. So to recap, others like it, others don't
