Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

iOS 8.3, 8.2, and iOS 8.1.3 are not jailbreakable. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 8.3, 8.2, or 8.1.3 to earlier versions.
Instructions for jailbreaking iOS 8.0-8.1.2. See /r/jailbreak on Reddit, @PanguTeam, and @TaiG_jailbreak for updates.

Really want to JB my 5, but concerned if it runs out of juice when I don't have my laptop around (and so the phone powers down) that I won't be able to power it on again when it's charged until I'm back where my computer is.

Can anyone shed any light on this at this point?

Untethered. They aren't gonna waste exploits on a tethered jailbreak.
