Battery Widget Reborn is a full-featured battery manager
Battery life is such a big issue on mobile devices that it's recommended to keep track of it properly. Tomas Hubalek's Battery Widget Reborn may be all you need to make it.
This app comes with both a home screen (1x1) and a notification drawer widget which does much more than showing just the battery level. Thus, it adds some functionality like power toggles (Bluetooth, sync, brightness, mobile data, WiFi...) you can fully customize and access from the notification drawer.
In addition, the notification drawer widget can show battery history (hourly battery draining bar graph) and many other parameters like battery level, voltage, temperature, health, etc. Finally, you can set and schedule profiles for Night and Weekend modes.
The interface is neat and smooth. Highly recommended app for monitoring your battery.

But stopped working.
31 July 2014 - No update extension? It has expired but there is no update to do. Happy user for ages until now.
Either remove the date check or learn to update sooner. This version "beta" expires often.
Elegant, non-obtrusive and functional!
Definitely a good addition to my phone.
This is an awesome app and I love the in-tray information & toggles. Just wish there was a toggle for turning vibrate mode on and off.
