Measure and Compare Your Battery Capacity

In Windows 7 Microsoft has added a new functionality for laptops, the current and actual condition of the battery and it’s discharge are measured, and compared to what should be the factory optimal charge and discharge of the battery.

For Windows phones there is no good way to measure the condition of your battery. Member tobbbie didn’t take no for an answer and created a tool that can help you measure the condition of your battery life.

BatteryRunDown is provided as a MortScript, so you will need to have Mortscript installed on your Windows Phone to use this.

The results of the test can be read in any spreadsheet program like Excel or Open Office Calc.
This way you can compare your results with those of other members.

As MortScript runs on all WM platforms from WM2k3 onwards and on both: Smartphone (standard) and PocketPC (professional), you can use this concept for all devices that MortScript runs on.

Continue on to the application thread.

Best of Matias Duarte – “Ask Me Anything” Summary
