Can you guys recommend a battery calibration app?

Currently im using ViperSaga, and yes we all know that our DS can live for a day or two depends on the usage.

Battery calibration by wiping battery stats is a myth. After 2-3 charge cycles, the indicated battery level will be as accurate as it ever will or can be.

AOSP developer Dianne Hackborn has made it clear that battery calibration is a myth. It only mean deleted the battery stats. And your device does that on each reboot.

Battery calibration does exactly that. It wipes the battery stats. And that is something your phone does automatically on each reboot.

Deleting stats is pointless indeed, but the battery calibration procedure that involves a discharge/recharge cycle, not only deletion of the stats file helps to have proper % indication that cannot happen on a Stock ROM which is the case the Google engineer is talking about. But when flashing custom is another story, then a wrong indication can appear after flashing and it has to be corrected

Though you can leave out wiping the battery, stats, the charge/discharge cycle is what helps.

Yes, including the final charging of powered off phone, that was posted in several threads lately by the same user
