Features & Use
Battery Monitor Widget is more than just a widget: it's a tool that analyses and displays your battery stats.
The widget is only 1x1 but it conveniently displays all vital stats. The current battery level is displayed as procent and current discharge in mA. These are the standard settings which can also be adjusted if you so wish.
Calibrating manually yields more accurate data, such as battery capacity and output voltage. The app automatically establishes these values, but they can be changed manually in case of some kind of error.
Statistics lovers—rejoice! For with Batter Monitor Widget you'll be rolling in stats galore. The app displays everything related to the battery: for average consumption to estimated time it will take for the device to recharge. Statistics are conveniently shown in table form and other visual forms.
One of the app's most useful features is the battery life estimator, as well as the main drainer detector: i.e. Battery Monitor Widget will help you identify which app is consuming the most power.
The History affords a detailed overview of the battery's cycles, displayed in a table showing 10 minute intervals.
Pro version advantages
