    Hi,

    I know there have been some discussiouns around this topic.

    I was looking for a nice battery percentage monitor using tiles. I found more of them but none was auto-updating the tiles, I always would have needed to click on the tile to get an updated battery percentage.

    Does anyone have found a monitor which updates the percentage automatically without draining the battery too much?

    I think this could be very usefull to a lot of people...

    Thanks in advance

    Unfortunately all of the battery monitoring apps behave the same way. This is because they can only auto update every 30 mins due to a limitation of Windows Phone.

    Ok thanks !

    But I still don't get why they don't integrate it like in Android or iOS... should not be that difficult ! :)

    The app "Battery Level for WP8" also lets you display battery status on the lockscreen, as one of the five apps that can show status at the bottom of the lock screen. It's pretty awesome.
