Battery Widget

Battery Widget


Battery Widget is an elegant 1x1 widget which shows you the battery level on your home screen, with some nice animation when charging. Tapping on it will show more battery information with a shortcut to view battery use. Now Battery Widget can help you save battery by letting you control device settings such as WiFi, screen brightness, GPS, and more.

In case you don't have enough space in your home screen, a clear battery level indicator is available on status bar so that you can see it even when you are browsing the web or sending text messages. It can be configured to show in 3 different colors to reflect high/medium/low battery levels. You can also define your own alerts, so that Battery Widget will automatically notify you about battery status changes.

Available in multiple languages: English, Chinese (Traditional), Chinese (Simplified), Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Russian, Greek, Italian, Hungarian, Estonian, Turkish, French, German, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish, Catalan, Dutch, Ukrainian and Romanian.

This is the best I've used by far. Gives you options like to alert you if your battery is finished charging or to alert you if its low.

exactly what I need, just a small battery icon in top info bar w/ a number. Doesn't drain the battery life at all either! def recommend to everyone.

Used to love it... Never had an issue with this until the last update. Now my battery has begun to heat up due to high usage from this app. Hopefully it gets fixed someday. Samsung Galaxy Note II
