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":
K3 Avail Cap should be around 1200 I have one that has dipped to 709
DX about 1300
K4 I have runs at 817 mAh
K5 runs at 956 mAh
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.

Regards,
