"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.

    I really enjoy using the app, especially the sleep/night mode. It gives one so much more battery time. Only complaint: widget keeps disappearing from my home screen (on my since retired 'Nexus S' mobile cell phone telephone).
