    Battery App that adjusts for extended battery?

    Lots of battery app threads out there but I haven't seen this question asked before. I have been using Battery Status Pro which provides an estimated time remaining. Apparently it has fixed times at 100% and then just calculates the time remaining by multiplying that number by whatever percentage is remaining on the battery. I picked up an extended life battery recently and when I check the estimated time remaining on a 100% charge using this app, the estimated times are exactly the same as with the standard battery. If you're swapping back and forth between the standard and the extended life battery, is there a battery app out there that has the ability to "know" which battery is currently installed in the phone and provide an estmated time remaining that's fairly accurate for whichever battery you're currently using?

    I think Battery Left has a dropdown for multiple battery profiles but I still never found that one to be particularly accurate, as I've said in many threads. But that's the only one I know that has the ability for multiple batteries.

    I LOVE Battery Left but when I started running 2.2 with a battery saving profile it has TOTALLY messed up the calibration even after recalibrating it... twice.

    Hmmmm...I installed the free version of Battery Left yesterday and it looks like it provides just the type of information that I was looking for and more. I'm in the process of calibrating the first battery, the extended life one. If I can get it to provide fairly accurate results, then I'll probably go ahead and purchase the pro version since it provides the multiple battery option and give it a whirl. Already uninstalled Battery Status Pro.

    Yeah me too then I can "motivate" the developer as a paying customer.

    Having been a programer in a previous life I feel his pain on trying to calculate various battery saving modes.

    "batterylife" is pretty simple, from what i can tell it just reads the system info and makes it into a widget. It also shows temp and mV as well as batty type (Li-ion)
    someone does not like my signatures, though Benin and satirical, so i just dont have one...

    Battery LEFT not life

    The "problem" is now with 2.2 you can have battery profiles which will force the dev to calculate "what is left" differently

    Is there an app that can provide a visual indicator when the battery is finished charging? I cant believe the X doesn't have one,even my old droid 1 had a light on the side that changed to green. crazy

    There is an app called Full Battery Alarm, that sets off an alarm when you battery is fully charged. That's the only app I found with a full charge indicator.

    Hope that helps.
