Simple Battery Widget


Simple Battery Widget is (as the name suggests) a simple battery widget for Android 2.2 and later.
It simply displays the current battery level in text and with color. The colors are configurable using a simple but powerful configurer.
There are three states "low" (0-15%), "good" (16-30%) and "full" (31-100%) which can have different colors in each widgets. The default colors for these states are: green for full, yellow for good and red for low.
The widget also indicates when the device is plugged into a power-source. The widget is capable of showing 1% changes but if the device supports it.

When clicking on the widget you will see detailed information on the device's battery and a button to re-configure the colors of the current widget.
As an alternative you can choose to open the Android Power Usage.

This widget does not drain battery - it only updates when screen is active and the Android Platform sends battery-updates!
There will not be a Pro-Version because a Battery Widgets can't be complex enough to be worth more than a donation.

Please exclude the widget from any task killer you might use, otherwise the widget won't receive any updates from Android and therefor won't display changes. If you did kill the widget: just remove it from the home screen and add another one.

Also, there seems to be a problem with the Samsung Galaxy S2. Some people mentioned that the widget sometimes freezes.
I'm sorry for that but have no idea what the problem is and because I don't own a SGS2 (or have a friend who does), I can't reproduce this bug. As there are only problems with the SGS2 I suppose it's a Samsung related problem because there are many apps in the market where problems only occur on the SGS2 :(

A big thanks to the developer of Android Asset Studio ( - otherwise there wouldn't be an icon.
