While I know they say its not good to fully discharge these batteries, I have noticed some improvement after flashing a new ROM. It seems like the battery meter gets more accurate after letting the battery get down to 1-4% then fully charging it before using it again.

So this app would help drain it faster.

While this can be useful to discharge battery completely just for
calibration of battery monitoring unit, it serves no purpose to
"deep-cycle" battery everytime, since it wears out on battery
more than charging it when it's still partially charged (it's like
expanding a spring, it wears out less when you expand it more
frequently, but to lesser extend, than when you force it to expand
to it's limits but less frequently)... I've proved this to myself with
my previous phone (SE P900, with excellent battery, Li-Pol 1260mAh
and 16h of talk time), when I've killed first battery by NiMH "care"
method (discharging completely until phone won't boot + fully
charging) in about one year, while next one used in normal way (frequent
charging when not completely drained) served me for about 2.5 year...

Why do the most people only see a complete/deep discharge?
You can also monitoring the time to drain 10%, or the loading curve?!
No one must discharge till the device is shutting down ...

But if somone need, i can implement a automatically break.

Maybe better idea would be not to drain battery by program,
but to monitor energy consuption and foreground applications,
and then prepare graph of most power-hungry apps?

By comparing power consuption of, for example, Opera, users
can check if they device isn't more hungry than it should be...

btw, you can check electromagnetic radiation and see differences between 2G and 3G like this.. as a proof to battery usage differences

You stated one could use this application to also monitor battery usage over normal use by disabling the backlight override and background worker, I am wondering if this does this fully eliminate the negative battery drain increased by this application?
I am currently running a battery drain trail that examines the current raphael radios effect directly on battery life through normal usage and I have been on the lookout for a battery monitor application that does not effect normal usage of the phone nor cause negative effects on battery life.

All of the currently available free applications I have found and tested are either inconsistent in their monitoring of battery life or greatly influence the battery life themselves causing inconsistent drain. While I see the usage of this application and commend you for your work thus far, as a suggestion for the future you may wish to look into creating simply a monitor. One that either every given time interval, kicks the phone out of sleep for a second, logs the battery level and time and goes back to sleep. Or simply logs the battery level and time every instance where the phone is taken out of standby / sleep. Either one would serve the community greatly as a battery application that accurately logs the drain without horribly influencing the battery life. One that any user could run without any major negative effects.

I thought about all sorts of things to suggest, like S2U2, IM+, etc, to drain ones battery, but I see this project does have some merit. I do have one suggestion for another battery draining method; turn on GPS! Or maybe you don't want the battery to drain that fast ;)
