    I tried turning on SBSettings battery percentage today (with Apple's battery percentage already on), and it changed from 84% to 82% in my status bar. Does anyone know how each of them are calculated, and which one is more accurate?

    Neither are too accurate to my opinion.My battery always drops and goes up when I turn it off so it just goes everywhere for some reason.

    I don't like either percentage! After I am done charging my iDevice, it drops to 96%-99% right after I pull the cord out >.< I want the battery percentage from cydia back

    Theres a tool in Cydia called Battery Control or something like that. I find it rather helpful. Other than that, you can always buy an app like Battery Doctor Pro.

    Battery Control isn't compatible with 4.0! And it's easier to just look up at the status bar and check it out

    Well, I'm even happier that I went back to 3.1.3 now.

    Haha!But yeah apple's battery percentage "system" is jacked up.They need to fix that problem.Iv'ed gone from like 25 to 50 before.It's annoying when it does that cause it seems to just never be accurate.

    That reminds me when it drops to below 20% it always goes back up like 5 times and I have to deal with that stupid notification that my battery is below 20...

    I've never had any problems with Apple's Battery Percentage.
    I found SBSettings' to be more inaccurate and constantly jumping around.
