"As long as it lasts"

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.

    This is heaven for a power user like me. Knowledge is power and Android apps like these make me fall in love with my phone in new and exciting ways. Can't recommend this app more conventional than this "IF YOU HAVENT BOUGHT IT, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!!!" & by the way, side note: Love the widgets and how customizable they are.
