    Admittedly, I'm not a big jailbreak guy, but jumped on the cool kids bandwagon when the iOS 5 jailbreak was released. I'm not running any jailbreak apps. I've got Cydia sitting there, but that's it.

    I'm seeing pathetic battery life from my iPhone 4S and naturally, I thought it might be the jailbreak. Anyone else see that or am I crazy? Thinking of just doing a restore.

    Might be psychological on my part.

    No change for me. My iPhone 4 had better battery life than my 4s but it's not too bad. I have 52% left after 2.5 hours use and 8.5 standby. Not too bad.

    Jailbreaking does have a slight impact on battery life. It's not a enough for me to notice, though, and I use a lot of Cydia apps and tweaks.

    Agreed. I do try to limit my mobile substrate addons, though. I'm not sure if it really makes a difference. I did delete winterboard and I have noticed a difference; again it may be psychological.

    The loss of battery life is worth the tweaks, in my opinion.
