This open source application is designed to monitor your battery state and provide useful information about the current charging level, the estimated time to charge or discharge and some more useful information.

Currently, the time estimation is done by two simple algorithms which calculate the estimation based on the discharging or charging time for one / three percent. There will be more sophisticated algorithms available in the future which will result in a better time estimation for your Android device.

Even if there is a stand-alone widget provided with the app, you can use the nicer looking widget by installing the DashClock Widget on your Android 4.2+ device.

WARNING: The application is just a very early development version and will be updated and changed frequently. If you are interested in new features (like a widget), request them at https://github.com/thuetz/Energize/issues

Requested permissions:

- RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: To collect information about the battery statistics (for providing an good charging estimate) we start a battery monitoring service at the time the device booted up completely. This service will log the changes in the charging level of the battery. That's it. Nothing more, nothing less :)

- WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: This permission is used to be able to copy the battery statistics database to the SD card of your device (in case you want to investigate what was logged).

- READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: This permission will be automatically requested as soon as the WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permission was requested. Its not actually used by this app.

- BILLING: This permission is requested to support donations directly inside of the app. You are NOT enforced to pay any amount of money to unlock a feature or disable ads. Its actually just for providing an easy way for donations.

    Nice interface, I'd only like it if clicking the widget would open the app, like clicking thew notification does.

    Its a handy app, does monitor battery state. What I would have liked is to be able to know what's drawing the battery and over time understand what function consumes the most. Having said that currently the program only serves as a monitor with the counte

    Good at what it does, but it would be much more helpful if there were more data analysis features, like graphs of averages, and overlaying the temperature and battery graphs. Additionally, the ability to zoom out to see more than a few hours at a time wou

    Is there any way of this app operating without being a service?

    Nicely designed and useful tool for showing me how long it takes until by battery is completely discharged or charged. Even if the estimation is currently a bit inaccurate it is a useful tool (and it is open source :-) )
