I won't admit that Ariel Battery is not a nice app, but I think that credits are not going where they are due.
1 - source code for Ariel Battery should be made available (not that I want the source code myself, but because that's what drives the philosophy behind open source, and why Kuchin was kind enough to publish is project on SourceForge in the first place).
I'm sure that my post is going to be largely ignored, censored or even deleted, but deontologically, I had to point this out.
I was really curious about the resources claims, so tried KBattery v1.0.3 and Ariel Battery v2.1 in turn, both running from my memory card, with nothing else running except for FdcSoft Task Manager v3.1 to check resources consumption:
Ariel Battery v2.1, all default options:
CPU used=0.3% to 1.3%, memory used=11KB
KBattery v1.0.3, default options, except displaying both battery AND time instead of just battery:
CPU used=0.1% to 0.3%, memory used=1KB
These results don't concur with sunny127 claims. These results are on a Toshiba e800 running WM2003SE, so your experience may vary. Another reason for me to stick to the original KBattery, albeit that's only me and everyone is free to use whatever they see fit.
