"As long as it lasts"

Reviewed by / Dec 16, 2013

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.

    It does what is says it will, and the information provided is useful. I would like to see the power saving options further developed with the introduction of real time wifi, data and Bluetooth management.

    Our tablet came without a numerical indicator for battery life and this provides that plus easy access to charging history and statistics and handy shortcuts to common settings and apps related to energy savings and day / night operation. Having a shortcut using the flash as a "torch" is particularly useful. In the end it was better to by the Pro version rather than the beta or ad supported vers
