    Hi guys,

    As we all know, native battery meter of NL920 is very unreliable and inaccurate, though I dont know whether its an OS issue or not. Consequently, i need a 3rd party battery app. Also im aware that there are tons of them in the store. Can anyone recommend me a neat battery app, according to his/her experiences? I'm afraid of a drain caused by the app itself :(

    I like Battery Level for WP8. I don't believe I've ever experienced battery drain from it on my 810 or 920.

    I'd recomend BATTERY PERFORMANCE, even though I don't use it since it doesn't have tile color configuration support, for me is the greatest one :D

    Battery | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United Kingdom)

    Not only includes battery stats, but also shortcuts which can have individual colours

    No mention of battery sense yet? Battery sense by far is the most accurate, most reliable and fastest battery app I've used.

    Battery Performance FTW. Saw the app and bought it right away. Reliable and no battery drain. The UX is topnotch!

    Does anyone have a recommendation for Windows 10 Insider Preview battery usage identification?

    With wifi, bluetooth, and 4G data off, I got barely 6 hours on a full charge with no usage and I have no idea where the drain is coming from.
