"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.

    I've tried all the top battery widget apps, this is the best, by far. I use it across a range of devices, the time-to-full charge and time-to-discharge features are very accurate. However, with my Asus Zenfone 2, the app is confused by the fast charge capability and instead believes the phone is still discharging (at a huge rate). Normal <2A charging and conventional usage doesn't present these
