Battery Burn (Drains Battery)

***Users using Android 4.0 or greater may experience force closes when using the camera LED flash***
This app is basically one that performs operations that are heavy on your device's battery, rapidly decreasing its charge.
There are a couple of uses for something like this such as bench-marking, and completing a battery charge cycle quickly.
Anyways, the application uses the following to deplete the battery:
-Maximizes Brightness on screen (Only while app is running, this reverts after exit)
-Polls GPS for location (Turn GPS on in advance)
-Scans WiFi (Turn WiFi on in advance)
-Flashes camera LED
-Opens a CPU intensive thread (On my device this caused the application to use around 80% of the CPU)
-Displays Battery temperature, and closes program if it goes over 50 degrees celsius
-Records the amount of time elapsed
-Displays the battery level
-Plays a video
-Auto turns on WiFi for you
-Asks if you want to enable GPS
-Fixed crashes when pausing and resuming drain mode
-Adjusted interface to work with smaller screens better
-Loads last used configuration
-Fixed time counter bugs
-Potentially fixed Flash issue on most devices
Of course, all of these things are toggle-able in the application, so you can enable or disable them to your liking.
