Spare Parts - Accurate Battery Readout?
Hey all, I was wondering about Spare Part's Battery percentage counter and its accuracy. I'm kind of OCD about the battery right now because I want to know exactly how long it will last on regular usage.
Anyway, I took it off the charger at about 6:30 AM this morning after an alarm, had another alarm and had about 4 calls. Messed with it a bit (Twitter and Gmail, etc) and went to work. It was at 100% until about 10:30/11 AM (quite a while) until I went installing Handcent SMS.
I tested it out and checked the battery. It was at 97%. Every 5 or so minutes, I checked the battery and it would go down a percent every time. Already uninstalled Handcent SMS as I thought it might be doing something.
It's 11:40 AM now and battery 88%.
I have Gmail to only sync my mail and it hasn't synced since 9 this morning, no calendar and contacts because contacts sync quite often and I didn't need it to. Twitter is set to sync every 2 hours. Those are the only things that have any syncing ability really.
Last night I had the phone in standby for about 3 hours and it was at 48% that whole time.
Mobile network is off since I'm on Wifi.
Is Spare Parts just catching up to the battery? Are there any apps to get the battery % in the status bar on top? Thanks guys!
