If you’re a battery-addict like ourselves when it comes to your jailbroken iDevice, then this little tweak from Cydia will surely solve all your problems. iBatteryInfo offers up all kinds of useful data, like whether or not your battery is fully charged, when plugging in and unplugging your iOS device, along with other stats such as your battery’s charging cycles (the lower number, the better it is), its amperage output, watts etc. As you can see in the image above, iBatteryInfo gives you a wealth of information including how charged your device is (in mAh), what its battery’s max capacity is (also in mAh), and whether or not it’s really fully charged. That last spec is nice because sometimes your device will say it’s fully charged, but it’s really not. Total charging cycles, your battery’s serial number and a few cable details like Watts and amperage output round out the available data.
It’s not a really complicated tweak since it doesn’t have a home screen icon, or even a Settings icon. So how do we use it?
Basically you don’t have to do anything. Just visit BigBoss repo in Cydia or just search Cydia for iBatteryInfo. Install it (it’s free don’t worry), let your device respring and you’re done. Every time you plug (or unplug) your device from the power cable a popup window will inform you with all the necessary statistics you’d love to know.
