There are a number of jailbreak tweaks that offer better battery indicator for iOS users. Alkaline is a good example of such tweak. However, although Alkaline and several other existing tweaks work great with older iOS devices, they are very glitchy on an iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Have you ever felt like the battery indicator over on your iOS device was not really accurate? Well, if you are looking for a good battery indicator for your iOS device, this next Cydia tweak could be an alternative to look into. Lithium, a new jailbreak tweak for iOS 8, is offering the same functions as Alkaline, but with smoother interface and a much better set of functions.
You can install Lithium from Cydia’s ModMyi repo. The install process takes no more than a few seconds, after which a respring is needed. You will then find an additional tab on your stock Settings app. You can then enable Lithium with just a tap.
Lithium comes with several basic themes, most – if not all – of which are quite similar to what Alkaline is offering. You can switch between themes in just one tap and do a respring. The jailbreak app will load the new theme automatically once you selected it.
Lithium does not rely on Winterboard for theming. I personally like how this jailbreak tweak just works out of the box. I currently have it installed on my phone and activated permanently, which is one of the main reasons why I don’t run out of battery anymore.
