    yes that is what happens when you jailbreak. It uses more power to run everything.

    They say the battery lasts for 300 charge cycles. Unfortunately, I am probably at 200 or so. Does anyone know how much it costs to replace the battery if needed?

    :O

    so that's why my battery dies too fast?
    Is the jailbreak reducing its life?
    and is it really true that the battery last for only 300 cycles?

    NiCad & NiMH life is usually rated to # of cycles. Then Lithium tech came along and people think it's the same, esp the marketers who slapped "Good for 1000 recharges" on everything. But it really isn't. Lithium life can be reduced by a high # of charges, perhaps, but it simply has a finite lifespan. One day, pfft...no worky.

    But it should have nearly full capacity throughout its lifespan. So if you are seeing reduced battery time, it really shouldn't be the battery dying. That's not how they die.
