    Best Battery Apps for Android Phones

    A small, but well-designed battery app displays accurate readings of the battery life on your Android phone. However, you need to choose the right Android applications for your battery that display the battery level and health graphically, yet do not drain your phone’s battery. Most users complain that certain battery apps drain away the phone’s battery life. Other complaints include space-consumption and inappropriate settings wizard. Well, here are some of the best free Android battery widgets that have a simple and easy-to-use interface, good color combinations and visuals and take less space on your home screen:

    BatteryTime Lite

    Battery Time Lite - One of the Best Android Battery Applications This free version of BatteryTime is one of the best free Android battery apps for its simple, less-cluttered interface and beautiful design. Not only does it display accurate battery readings in percentages, but also gives an idea to the user on the available audio/video playback time as well as the available time to surf the web and the idle time based on the current battery reading. Features in the lite version are quite sufficient for users who want a simple battery widget. However, there is a Pro version available for those who want more themes and additional settings to change the display.

The best part is the excellent battery design, and I am sure you won’t hesitate to display this app on your Android home screen, given its superb design and small size.

    BattStatt Screenshot The display style of this Android battery app makes it quite distinct from other apps. You won’t see the same battery meter displaying readings in percentage format, as it displays the reading in words. So a 57% battery reading will read “Fifty Seven” instead of a percentage. It may appeal to users who want plain no-nonsense Android battery apps that can straight away show accurate results. Of course, there are other display options that users may dabble with, but this literal format is truly quite likable.
