Apple, app developers and hacks alike have all been frustrated by the secret to improved battery life. Well, it looks like BattSaver might be one answer.
BattSaver is a new jailbreak tweak by xVolks, a company of iPhone hackers. BattSaver could potentially up to double the battery life of an iPhone. BattSaver identifies features in the smartphone that are draining its battery life and suppresses them.
BattSaver concentrates on iPhone radios, i.e. Wi-Fi and cellular connections. The jailbreak tweak manages power usage when iPhone radios are enabled and disabled. Theoretically, this gives the device an increase in battery life.
BattSaver allows users to choose one of four saving strategies:
• Normal mode: When the iPhone is “sleeping”, BattSaver disables all radio signals. The iPhone will still check for new email every 15 minutes.
• Aggressive mode: If Wi-Fi is connected, BattSaver disables the data connection completely. The idea here is if the phone is already Wi-Fi connected, don’t waste battery power with a data connection in-waiting.
• Ultimate mode: This mode completely disables all radio signals. It’s almost the same as a smartphone’s Airplane Mode.
• Custom: Allows countless configurations for BattSaver - perfect for jailbreakers.
The BattSaver jailbreak tweak is available for download in the Cydia Store for $2.99.
