    I havent noticed a difference. This thing still goes 12 hours to get to 2% on the battery. Amazing.

    Well, as you likely already know, there have been update issues w/ the current releases of iOS concerning battery issues, so what version(s) are you talking about and what problems are you talking about - please, when posting a new thread, include some specifics - just saying -

    Hi and thanks for your suggestion Giradman. I'm referring to the new update 6.1.2. I heard there was some talk regarding battery issues with this new update and wanted to be aware. As I mentioned in my post, I've had NO problems whatsoever with the new update.

    Hi Frank - thanks for your response - I'm on the 6.1.2 update also and have not notice much of a change, but there still seems to be some discussion over the topic - sorry about any misunderstanding - Dave

    iPad 3, IOS 6.1.2. JAILBROKEN about a month. Starting 2 days ago I've been monitoring the battery performance. When I turn the iPad on I note the time and again when I turn it off.

    In 24 hours from a full charge and using the iPad less then 2 hours the battery is down to 42%. I started monitoring because after 48 hours from full charge with unknown usage (probably 2 hours or so), the battery had depleted to 10%. I also notice it takes much longer to fully charge. It used to go to a full charge in 6 hours or less now it takes 12 or more hours to a full charge.

    I don't recall ever having battery issues like this prior to the 6.1.2 upgrade.

    Any suggestions to getting the most out of the battery?

    I'm really not sure how to fix your problem jimt. Perhaps others will chime in with a fix. Good luck!

    @jimt29, check your Cydia tweaks/apps compatibility. Incompatibilities are one of the major causes (if not the number 1 cause) of battery draining. Make sure that all your tweaks are compatible with iOS 6, and if they're not, remove them until they're updated for iOS 6 compatibility or use alternatives that are supported by iOS 6 until that happens.

    Good call. That was the first thing I did. Found 1 conflict and remove the offender. I also shut off most notifications but still the problem persists.

    Thanks for weighing in.
