    My original iPhone and iPhone 3g were both jailbroken prior to getting my iPhone 4. Used the 4 extensively prior to jailbreakme. It had the most amazing battery life. I literally was blown away.

    Then I jailbroke it. I kept it simple. I really do it to tether, use sbsettings, quickreplysms, and to maximize audio and adjust vibration patterns.

    My battery has blown since the JB. I saw 10% drops over a six hour period without use. That's after killing processes that were running in the background.

    I decided to remove some things. Same problems. Eventually, I just removed MobileSubstrate. This also removed most of the customizations I had (sbsettings, quickreply, and 5 icon dock).

    BAM...battery life back to normal.

    Yes, I miss those three things. But having an amazing battery beats it. The only thing I wish I could get is the Saurik PDF Fix....but, alas...it uses MobileSubstrate.
    I don't think I'd give up the functionality for a little battery life. Plug it in at your office, in your car, or carry those little external battery backups ($8 on ebay). Otherwise you might just want to turn it off completely- that will really extend the battery life.
