I installed your app and found it to be excellent and very easy to use, however I have a question regarding the numbers. My phone is an SMT 5600 suposed to last 140 hours on stand by, but I get about 1 day.
Try turning off Bluetooth, that eats up a lot of battery.
This is a neat app. I assume the OS tracks the battery capacity, and simply reports to you the percentage. But does the OS keep track of the time between % readings, or do you have to track that?
It is interesting that if I never turn on the screen, it could last 12 days.
Has anyone written up how much current draw there is to doing different tasks? (IE: Screen on bright = 25 mA. Screen dim = 20 mA. Screen OFF and no program running = 1 mA, running DOOM = 50 mA, etc.) (Hey those were just examples NOT REAL DATA)
