    There are two (technically 3) ways to show the battery percentage on the Ipod Touch 4th Gen. Two of which are through a .plst hack, the other is through SBSettings. I have always noticed that when done through SBSettings, it will have one of the following effects:
    • Not correct
    • Kill the battery

    Now if you do it through the .plst hack where you go to Settings>General>Usage

    and do it there, It has the following effects:

    • Very close to being correct
    • Does NOT kill the battery

    Now this is just done on mine. If anyone would like to make a comment on there comparison, post back!

    I have found it to be a waste since I just constantly check the percentage and as it drops and drops it bugs the hell out of me so I just removed it

    SBSettings adds the SBShowBatteryLevel key to com.apple.springboard.plist btw.

    There shouldn't be much of a difference since both percentages are native.

    The SBsettings one will stay even if you update unless you remember to disable it.

    Either way, I thought numeric battery on SBS was awfully inaccurate. And I agree, it drained battery more, plus I drove myself crazy constantly paying attention to what my battery had left. I like my Battery Life Pro app better. Definitely more accurate, and it also shows a battery log, and graph which shows the kind of life I have been getting, and the rate at which it discharges.
