ChargeBar is battery widget bar style that the one included in the MIUI ROM
We're used to check how much battery is left in our digital numeric battery widget. However, MIUI ROM developer thought that a bar is simpler, less intrusive and cuter than the numeric widget. This apps brings that bar style to your Android, no need to be root either install ROMs.
ChargeBar is highly configurable: you can enable/disable start it on boot or when you tap on it, hide/show it in full screen apps, hide/show in lookckscreen, display a status bar notification/reminder or show animations while charging. Obviously you can change its color, set its height and select where you want it to be displayed (top, bottom or bottom of status bar). We're missing though an automatic traffic-light color switching to see at a glance the battery level status. What's more, even the bar-style is really attractive, it would be good to have the option to place also the numeric info (some apps like the camera doesn't launch when an specific battery level is reached).
Anyway, it has both good-looking bar and preferences menu. It's faithfull with MIUI style. If you haven't ever tried a battery bar-style in your Android, then give this a go! Cool
What makes ChargeBar unique?
ChargeBar is the only MIUI battery bar application that can accurately automatically hide in fullscreen apps (great for those who want to have ChargeBar be translucent and overlay their status bar), and it is the only MIUI battery bar application that lets YOU set what colors you want to display when. No predefined ranges means that you are 100% in control!

Thank you for choosing ChargeBar!
New "below status bar" position.
SD/ external backup and restore functionality.
Brilliant app! A must try!
An apparent threat.
Can get rid of the icon in the notification bar. App crashes with some setting toggled. Ads in notification bar.
Why didn't someone think us this before
I would like to remove the icon from the notification bar and have a way to hide the bar when the shade is down. If you use the below status bar option, the bar covers the notification shade when its down. its not a big deal, it just doesn't look great. O
I took the app for the notification of the battery, and did not want to do, but when I changed the "height" of 1 to 2 working perfectly ... great app, at least for my needs ... cheers !!!
