    Best Battery App?

    Has anyone release a more accurate battery app for the Droid? If not, what is the battery app you're currently using? I have My Battery Status, but it's pretty plain and boring looking. If there's nothing out there that will perform better, I'd like something better looking (thats what she said).

    Thanks!

    I just use a shortcut that points to the built-in battery app along with BetterCut to give it a new icon.

    Im using BatteryLife and It seems to be pretty sweet. Even tells me detailed info like battery temp, voltage, technology, as well as the health and percentage of charge left.

    I use three separate apps depending on what I want out of the battery info.

    For a quick glimpse at the current charge, I like CurveFish's BatteryLife widget. It's 2x1 so not too big or small, and you can pick the colors for it from a color wheel. The resolution is only 10% increments.

    For a more detailed log, I also use an app called Android Battery Dog. It tracks your battery level over time and draws some nice graphs, which allows you to better eyeball how much juice your phone has. It still has 10% increments but you can see how long it's been since the last 10% increment and how quickly you seem to be going through 10% increments.

    Finally, I also have a home screen Shortcut to Settings -> Battery Use. This identifies any features or applications that might be guzzling the juice.

    battery left gives you an accurate(when calibrated) idea of how long your battery will last.

    Battery App

    I like Battery Life which can give me a quick assessment of how much battery I

    have left.

    I like Spare Parts which gives battery history, information, and usage

    statistics.

    There are a lot of battery apps out there and the more apps you have,

    generally use up more battery.

    I think the goal is to determine where cell phone coverage is low, so you can

    manually shut down unused programs which suck the life out of the battery

    i.e. wifi, gps, bluetooth etc and consider something like Adv Task Management

    to shut down some of the background programs.

    Anyone come across a battery app that is more defined in terms of percentage left... i.e. not just 10% increments? It puzzles me why the battery percentage is done in this format...
