One of the most important factors that we look for in a cell phone is the battery life. Battery is something every person is concerned about while buying a phone and i guess you know why. And iPhone as we all know has a pretty good battery life but not the best. The iPhone 4S is said to drain battery very fast compared to its predecessors. And that is very obvious since the iPhone 4S has many new features which are tend to eat up battery. It’s not only iPhone 4S but the previous models as well i.e. iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 that eats up battery but it completely depends on the usage which varies person to person of course.
If you are a person who uses iPhone to watch movies and internet then the battery dies soon enough as compared to those who only use the cell as a device just to answer or make a call. Now there are various factors that cause the drainage of battery. For e.g. Themes, Wi-Fi, 3G, Apps that run in background, Tweaks and many system apps that runs. If we can manage every process that eats up battery then it will sure increase the battery life. And you must be wondering how to do that.
You do not have to do anything; developer @xvolks has a solution for this. He has created a new Cydia Tweak named “BattSaver” for iPhone. This tweak claims to double the battery life of your iPhone i.e. almost 100% more battery usage. BattSaver works in the background to provide you the battery life you ever wondered, it increases the battery life up to 2X.
After installing BattSaver Cydia Tweak, simply enable it and it will get in action. It switches OFF the modules that are not in use and still use battery which in return saves the battery of your iPhone. You can check with the current and last battery state. Detailed information of the battery can be viewed in the form of graph from the settings.app of BattSaver. Battery state of last hour, 6 hour, 12 hour and days can be viewed. This is something I personally like.
Other options include Turning Off Data, which turns off 3G/Edge and Wi-Fi when not in use. You can manage other connectivity/radio options such as Bluetooth, GPS Location, Push, etc. BattSaver Cydia Tweak does it all for you. There is an Ultimate Mode which is turned on when the battery level is at 15%. In this condition BattSaver manages the battery in critical condition.
BattSaver Cydia Tweak for iPhone is definitely the ultimate option to go for if you want to increase the battery life of your device. It does the job well and is worth buying. How much it will cost you? It is priced at pretty decent price which is $2.99. If it doubles the battery life of your iPhone the price is worth for sure.

BattSaver Cydia Tweak for iPhone is available in Cydia Store under BigBoss repo. You need to run iOS 5 and above running on your iPhone and of course it needs to be Jailbroken device. If you own an iPad or iPod Touch then hard luck this time, since it only works with iPhone.
