    Ok so I heard that when putting the battery percentage on it kills the battery really fast.

    but what about the other status bar options, like free mem, date, numeric wifi, etc.
    Does it also kill the battery fast?

    SBSettings should barely even affect your battery. Where'd you hear that info??

    ok maybe I phrased the question wrong,
    but i meant the numeric battery being displayed kills the battery not sbsetting it self.

    and I want to know if the other status bar options do to.

    How would displaying the percentage of the battery drain it any faster?

    Well that's what I heard from many people experiencing, not on iphone because its already built in but only ipod touches using sbsettings to enable numeric battery.

    Do any of you with ipod touches enabled numeric battery and noticed a battery drain of any sort?

    I have had numeric battery on my iPod with SBSettings for ages and it doesn't drain ANY battery. It can't be any different from an iPhone's numeric battery.

    No, they don't. It's not because of the Numeric Battery that they're experiencing drain. It's because they installed every single mod/tweak/mobilesubstrate addon in Cydia that they saw.
