    Unsinstall useless things, reduce themes, decrase screen brightness. What are you doing?? Playing games, watching movies, or playing music??

    I have installed Cydelete, emulators, iBroke, Categories, Winterboard, <REDACTED>, Terminal, and a lot of tweaks.

    I play a lot of gba emulators and Fantastic Contraption.

    Well it's obviously going to drain your battery fast, playing GBA games takes up a lot of battery alone, if you pair that with a ton of the other stuff you have, your battery's gone, fast.

    lulz <REDACTED>!!! anyways yeah emulators are pretty sweet, but they eat battery. maybe categories too. themes will definately take down.

    My Final Tip: Slow down with playing the emulators.

    also some emulators run in the background even when you quit by default (e.g. ines) So make sure you close fully either by holding the home button when quiting or installing e.g. sbsettings and process option.

    I wish people would stop installing or mentioning that <REDACTED> app... just leads to ban hammer waving... you have been warned...

    p.s. Ohfoohy, I finally got around to adding your Battery Capacity Calculator download to the Battery Life stickies thread. Been very busy (mod stuff and the like). Sorry
