BStats Brings Powerful Battery Tracking to Gingerbread

With our ever expanding screen sizes, exponentially faster processors, and marginally slimmer device profiles; there is one thing that still seems to still be stuck in the stone age: battery life. Often the limiting factor in determining just how much productivity is possible when on the go, we are still at the mercy of the almighty milliamp-hour at the end of the day. It is said that knowing thy enemy is the first step, and with that in mind, it’s a good idea to know exactly what causes your battery to buckle.

One of the most important features in recent Android builds is the highly detailed battery stats panel. Giving you information about resource-intensive apps, graphs of usage over time, and more, it comes in quite handy when tuning your power profile. However, there are those for whom even this is not enough. Furthermore, not everyone is on Ice Cream Sandwich or later, and thus may not have access to all of the battery tracking fun.

XDA Forum Member onesrv created BStats to give users even more visualization options when determining which apps quench their power thirst most liberally. BStats can track power usage both over time and by application. And best of all, this works on all devices running Android 2.3.3 and greater!

Head over to the application thread to get tracking.
