For some owners of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, the issue of their device's battery life is a major concern. This is why a great deal of users are searching for ways to prolong their iDevice's battery life. There are times when you are so pre-occupied with using your device that you lose track of the battery bar, and then bam, you get a notification that you are low on battery. It can be a really frustrating experience especially if you are in a situation where you can't access a charger. Well here's a jailbreak tweak that will let you hang on to your battery life for as long as possible.
The name of the tweak is appropriately called PowerSaver, a new jailbreak tweak from no other than Akhil Tolani. If you have been installing tweaks on your iDevice, then you should be familiar with some of his work like SuperSlider, LockGestures, LockLauncher, StyleUnlock, Brightness Icons and 6switcher. PowerSaver is yet another addition to Tolani's already impressive jailbreak portfolio.
So what can you expect from PowerSaver? Well this tweak from Cydia allows the user to set certain actions that will activate once the battery bar reaches a certain percentage. Do you want your device to automatically enter Airplane mode whenever your battery reaches less than 30% and have no access to a charger? Do you want your iPhone to automatically dim its brightness whenever it reaches the danger zone? Well with Powersaver, you can certainly do so and more.
When you have downloaded and installed the tweak, you will be presented with a mini-guide indicating that the user should set each action 5% away from each other otherwise, the action won't be performed. So it would be a good idea to space out the actions to ensure that the tweak works as intended. Before setting an action, the user needs to input a percentage first which when the action will be performed. These are the list of actions that Powersaver can perform:
As you can see, there's quite a great deal of actions that you can perform with PowerSaver. So you can set your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to automatically dim its brightness whenever it reaches 50% battery percentage. And when you charge your device to 100%, you can have the tweak increase the screen brightness back up. This is especially useful when screen brightness is one of the major factors in battery consumption. PowerSaver can also slow down your battery consumption by disabling WiFi whenever your device's battery bar reaches a certain threshold.
PowerSaver is an extremely useful tweak that one can use to keep their iDevices running for as long as possible. Yes, you can manually perform the actions that PowerSaver can do but why go all through the trouble when you can have it set automatically? It's definitely a worry-free solution to battery conservation. It is also compatible with iOS 5.0. PowerSaver tweak is available in Cydia under the BigBoss repo for only $1.50.
To access the PowerSaver tweak, as usual you need to have a jailbroken iDevice. In case you need help in jailbreaking your iOS device, just read the following detailed guides. If you are under iOS 4.3.5, then you can use our tethered jailbreak Redsn0w guide. On the other hand, if you want untethered jailbreak instead, then we recommend you restore to iOS 4.3.3 and jailbreak your device and select your tool of choice from the following: Redsn0w, Sn0wbreeze, PwnageTool and JailbreakMe (very newbie friendly). If you running the iOS 5.0 and don't mind a tethered solution, then use our Redsn0w guide. [via ModMyi]Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
