SpoonCharge - Fullscreen Battery Monitor

Introduction
This is an application which displays the current battery information in large text. It also doubles as a fullscreen torch application.

I wrote it so I could see from a distance what the charge level was, and how fast the battery was charging.

The colour of the text also changes depending on levels, and temperature.

This has only been tested on a Diamond2, but works with many other devices. Not all features work on certain ROMs or Phones, and it generally helps to have a rom with 1% power driver installed. Some people have seen the app working fine without this.

It's based on Joel Johnson's article at CodeProject, but translated/refactored from Visual Basic to C#.

Version History

Initial release
v1.01 26/4/10
Detect AC adapter status, not use negative battery current

Ability to change refresh interval

Add time to screen

I'm sure you need a hacked 1% battery driver installed, for this app to work correctly. So either do that on your stock ROM.... or flash a custom rom
