    What is the best/lightest battery application?

    I was using the 'Battery' until now but tested the 'Battery Performance' and was amazed with the interface.

    people are ao lazy now a days that they need an app for battery status !!

    just,go to settings n check it coz these apps update every 30 mins and suck ur battery.

    ps: Didnt mean to attack your post !!

    Best battery app? None. Every battery app only drains your battery more so it hasn't really an advantage or something...

    they update one value every 30 minute, which is connected to one single request. This doesn't affect battery life at all, turning the screen on will drain it more than updating the tile a billion times.

    Yep, completely agree, awesome battery stats and has the useful ability to "Stop the Music" from the volume bar

    Not so fast! Personally I want a dead simple app that does two things. Firstly, report battery level on lock screen and a single small tile. Secondly, give quick access to options to switch off the various power hungry radios. Power Tool does this perfectly, with no notifications or history graphs or other stuff I don't need. The only thing it lacks is quick access to the NFC settings. All other settings of note (inc. GPS) are there. It even allows for speech commands. Simplicity is a feature worth considering.
