    MeterBerry basically tracks and logs your battery discharge rate (as well as memory usage/availability).... Gives you results in %/hr, and logs it at user specified intervals... And you can reset whenever. Great app. Helps in tracking how quickly your battery is draining, so you can tailor usage if running low... Wondering if there might be an Android equivalent...


    cheers

    "Spare parts" does a lot of battery tracking. Freely available from the market.

    yeah - i have spare parts... but it doesn't give that one metric i'm looking for... which is battery discharge rate expressed as % per hr...

    anyone?

    Tag. I'm interested in this as well. I hate taking the 30 seconds to calculate discharge rate in my head. I was super-dependent on MeterBerry.

    Well there's Battery Dog which is an okay attempt at graphing, and there's Battery Left which is pretty good at learning and giving an accurate readout.

    :( The Android OS doesn't supply the one vital metric for accurate power monitoring --amperage-- and that's why all battery monitors are bound to rely on various "estimation methods" (guesswork :rolleyes:).

    hmmmm... that sucks... seems like an Android device - which is pitched often times as having great battery management features (app killing in background based on use, etc.) yet the most vital piece for battery drain rate is not being measured... odd
