    This looks pretty interesting. What is it pulling its stats from? "Instant" or "Average over X minutes"... I was using Android System Info, but when you open it, ASI is on top (so it's pulling "that minute" info), not really telling you what's draining your battery in the past 24 hours. WMDP seems to be using an average, since it's app starts at zero and moves up the list slowly with each refresh. Would be nice to know if it's an average over "X" time, or since the app was started... Much better info than the general items listed in Battery Use.

    Sorry, can’t answer any of that... just bumped into the app, or it bumped into me. But it has come in handy in guessing what to uninstall when I’m overdoing it.

    Power Tutor. It is even better than Wheres my Droid Power. You can reset the analysis and you can break it down to show CPU and or Display power usage for each app. Allows you to compare two apps (eg. after loading and running Astro and ES, I found that Astro continues to use up battery power after exiting)

    Power Tudor seems very useful! Installed on my Optimus, said not compatible, but seems to be working fine. What's real nice is the live graph. My "Radio" was a constant 600mW, I switched to airplane mode, and you could watch the chart drop from 600 to zero! Very nice to actually watch what an app (or system) is doing. Of course the app itself will pull lots of power while running, just hit "stop" when you're done.... or let it track for an hour and see what really happening. Best power analyzer I've tried! Thanks again!
