My Battery Drain Analyzer Reports Undisputed Battery Drain Values
XDA Recognized Developer profete162 has created a new app to monitor battery drain. If you are one of the many who experience higher-than-usual battery drain My Battery Drain Analyzer will show you hour by hour what state your battery was in. The app also computes an important number for those who are attempting to prolong battery life: percent drain per hour. From the Market entry:
When tracking my battery usage, I was always missing something…
That information was the Battery drain in percent per hour.
I just made this app for my personal use and it’s now time to share it.
This app will always sleep and wake up every time your battery drop one percent to save the current battery state and the time. On the next battery drop, I will compute the battery drain.
Need to figure out exactly how quickly you’re losing power? Want to monitor your new devices battery loss as you settle in and install all your favorite apps? My Battery Drain Analyzer is the perfect place to start, and you can get it via the Market here.
