What. Does it do why is this needed is it going to miss my battery up
From what I found on google, that seems to be a poorly worded permission. What it actually means is that it allows an app to read, but not edit, your phone's battery stats.
In fact on the latest version of android it looks like it has been renamed to just 'BATTERY_STATS'.
Thanks so the permission is nothing to worry abot then
I wouldn't worry too much about giving battery stat permissions. Some apps take current battery life into account and may kill its own process or reduce to a lower state of consumption once the battery is registering a pre determined, and sometimes user adjustable percentage.
Separate names with a comma.
