when I first read the title, I thought it was to make my battery last longer but it is actually more like a reminder app to charge my phone

Hmm... I actually agree with this statement...

OP, you may want to consider a different description for the thread's title as it is quite misleading.

Heh, guys, the threads title is a fact. What do you expect to see here? Be shure, android itself care about your battery as much as it possible. Just keep your apps activity under control. Do not need to use rought tools, it may block other apps features and requirements unexpectedly - you may not even notice these (because, most likely, will not get an error message), but you'll never get a user experience, which envisaged by developers.
Basically, you don't need to worry at all, except not to forget dock-in your smartphone at night, and when you are using heavy apps, like 3d games, for example. That's my app about.

Interesting concept, but you could go one further by using the average consumption per day to estimate if you have enough battery for the following 24 hours.

My phone doesn't get plugged in every night. My battery is often at the 70% mark when I go to bed after a days use. It only takes about 5% during the night and 65% is more than enough to get me through another day with light usage (which I do a lot).

So as an example:
Average usage per day is 50%
Go to sleep at 11PM
If battery is greater than 50% at 11 PM - no notification
If battery is less than 50% at 11 PM - notify for charging

Another improvement idea's for this app.

- A option that can set a time-span (by a complete week) when you have no charger with you or no socket available.
- A option that automatically detects how fast your battery will be charge.
- Now it should notify you when it is really time to charge your phone. And not only when you go to sleep.

If that is available i would call this app useful

I don't get the point for this app. Why not set a simple daily reminder; there are thousands of apps that can do this: stock Alarm, RTM, Tasker, Regularly, etc
