SuperPower Battery Saving App Updated
As we saw last month, XDA senior moderator Chainfire released his Beta version of “SuperPower”. It is a battery saving app that features many different methods of controlling your devices functions such as:
- Cellular data
- CPU speed
- Bands (2G/3G)
- Background data
Using the app yields greater control and flexibility over how much battery you wish to preserve by setting multiple variables.
