***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
-Pulses Vibrator
-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

Previous Changes:
-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.

    It is nice that it takes pictures every couple seconds, but for the rest it only uses about 10% cpu on a Galaxy S3! "BatteryDrain" works better

    Small bug, when the drainer has started and you go to options to change a setting it does not save and you can't save new options until you have reset the app. Even if you stop the drainer and try to set the option again it will not save.

    Tried it. Didn't work. Used another. Worked perfectly. Too bad. Back to drawing board.
