Some of the best jailbreak tweaks provide useful information in a sleek and stylish manner, improving on stock iOS features. One such tweak is Live Battery Indicator, which merges the best of both worlds when it comes to showing battery life remaining. Not only will the new status bar icon displayed by this tweak show current battery percentage, but it will graphically show how much power is left.
A simple circle surrounding the percentage indicates this value visually, so as the battery power is depleted the circle indicates life remaining. When battery life is low, the circle will be proportionally dark to indicate that charging is needed. Unlike the stock iOS battery icon with percentage turned on, Live Battery Indicator is compact, saving space and displaying information efficiently.
There are no settings to configure, just install Live Battery Indicator from Cydia for free to enable the new, streamlined battery life icon. Those using Winterboard will find that the tweak includes instructions under Settings for theming. An alternate theme is included, with a more traditional style battery icon surrounding the percentage. There are also instructions on how to design and install your own custom battery icon, that can be activated via Winterboard.
Live Battery Indicator is available on Cydia from the ModMyi repository free of charge. Check here for instructions on how to jailbreak iOS 6.x with evasi0n. You can also find out how to purchase and install Cydia tweaks with this guide.
