About this app

BatteryBot Battery Indicator is the original battery indicator app for Android™, released in 2009 as simply "Battery Indicator." Both the free and the Pro versions have maintained a 4.5+ star rating in Google Play from the beginning. It offers two modes: the original status bar indicator and now also a desktop widget. You can use either or both, as you please.

BatteryBot monitors and shows your battery charge level (percent) as an icon in your status bar, with how much time you have left, temperature, health, voltage, and time since plugged / unplugged in the notification area. It now also has a 1x1 app widget. The Pro version also has user-configurable alarms, logs, mA current information, and a large (4x1) widget.

Give it a try -- it's free and open source! BatteryBot Battery Indicator requires NO special permissions whatsoever. It's an excellent and complete solution to your battery needs.

Features:

• No ads (why would you want a battery app with ads?)
• Exact battery level in the task bar
• Or hide the task bar icon, keeping notification in tray — or turn notification off completely and just use widgets
• Multiple icon set options
• Automatic time-remaining estimates based on recent usage
• Small (1x1) circle desktop widget
• Notification (with status bar icon) is now optional -- can be used as just a desktop widget
• Very lightweight (please email me if you think otherwise, and I'll help you figure out what's wrong — I promise this app will not drain your battery!)
• Shows 1% increments even on most Motorola devices
• Well-tested and supported on all major versions of Android (2.1 through 7.0; Eclair through Nougat) and form factors (small phones, medium phones, large phones, 7-inch tablets, 10-inch tablets).
• Open source

For those who want more than is offered in the free version, or for those who just like to support small, independent developers like me, the Pro version remains lightweight while packing in many useful features:

Pro-only Features:

• Alarms (fully charged, charge above X, charge below X, temperature above X, or health failure)
• (On devices that allow it) Icon colors (including fully configurable green, amber, red, and black icons)
• (On most devices) Electric current (mA / milliamp /milliampere) reading to/from battery on supported devices
• Large (4x1) desktop widgets
• Battery logging. You can log the battery state (charge, status, voltage, temperature) and browse the logs on the phone or export to CSV.
• Control the notification priority on Android 4.1+ (For example, you can set to "minimum" to hide the icon but keep the notification in the tray.)
• Lots of configurability of behavior and appearance.
• The charging indicator (the bolt under the number that indicates when the device is being charged) for the sets that have it is optional in the Pro version.

Here's the BatteryBot business model / philosophy:

1) Ads are annoying. For some apps, ads might make sense, but a system utility should not have ads.

2) The free version should be simple but useful; it shouldn't feel crippled.

3) Some people choose to purchase the Pro version because they want extra features, some because they want more customization, and many because they just want to say "thanks" for the free version and support small, independent developers like me.

Prior to version 12.0.0 the battery circle was dark with white text... now it's reversed, and there's no way to change bit back... distressing, like something Microsoft would do. Give us a way to make it esthetically pleasing so it matches home pages. Glad it's free and functional. No ads, doesn't hog the battery.

Been using the app for over 10 years and I love how basic it is. It does exactly what it needs to do. My latest phone does have one problem that I don't know is caused by the app or device itself. The main notification will go away constantly when the phone is locked and off. Reopening the app brings it back. Sometimes it even goes away while the phone is on and in use. Please tell me either how to fix this issue or possibly make an update to fix for everyone. Galaxy a10e

Excellent app! Very user-friendly. The only thing that would make it even better is if it displayed the current charge level right on the app icon itself all the time, or in some other conspicuous place on the home page, so that the app wouldn't always have to be opened, just to see the percent charge number... received a prompt response to this! I added the widget from BatteryBot, and it worked perfectly! Now this app is PERFECT! It definitely seems to be the best battery app out there now!...

Hi, thanks for the kind review. You can add the widget to your desktop to see the charge level nice and conspicuously there. No need to open the app if that's all you're after! Feel free to email if you need help setting that up (I'm pretty slow at emails but do my best to get to them). Thanks!
