I'm not sure I know what a battery timer app is...
There is http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...5&postcount=11
which simply spits out a report of the current level and more importantly the Available Capacity, which will diminish over the lifetime of the device....
"Thumb in the air metrics":
Avail Cap should be around 1200
I have one that has dipped to 709
I have runs at 817
runs at 956
Don't have a PW to compare to sorry...
EDIT: ah as shown here
Jimmy-Jims PW is 709
Obviously the higher the Available Capacity the less often you will have to charge the device and the longer it will live between charges.
I can kill a device in about 4 hours to dead flat when playing really intensive games (like doom) on it.
Hopefully some reference metrics will help move this discussion forward.
Is that for a tablet or something? Or am I being stupid?
