    Default Battery Indicator App

    Here's a nice battery app. It kinda reminds me of Meter Berry but nicer UI. It's an Android Port. Pretty good.

    decent application. I have been using 'battery watch' its not bad but it doesn't track on the graph. This was my favorite feature on my last phone.

    I'm using bx battery info. But, I am waiting for battery guru to be released for bb10. Currently, it's only available on the PlayBook. When it's out I'm going to switch - it's that good. The dev is on here too and he says he's working on a native version right now.

    Thanks billsterjito.

    It's not only almost ready to release, it's actually been submitted for approval, a few days ago.

    No idea how long that may take... could be today, or could be 10 days from now. They had a huge backlog and, although there are signs they're through or almost through it, nobody really knows yet. Fingers crossed it's very soon now.

    I'm also working on the next release already, which will add a very useful feature many people have requested. ;-) I intend much more frequent updates than was feasible with the PlayBook version.
    Battery Guru for BB10 tracks voltage, power, battery health. (Also on the PlayBook.) White Noise helps you sleep or concentrate.

    Can you give a brief overview why this is a better battery app please?

    Since just after the launch of the PlayBook, when it came out, Battery Guru has been the only one that reliably shows more than very basic battery level information. It reports OS-provided values for battery "health", voltage, power, temperature, and more. It logs it all (every two minutes, as the OS supplies the info), and provides a nice graph. The BB10 version lets you scroll back in the graph to view the last few days of activity, helping you identify and analyze interesting or unusual patterns of use.

    Maybe the best part is my frequent involvement in CrackBerry threads, providing expert assistance and training on battery-related issues.

    It's not merely a "better" battery app, it's by far the best. :-)

    I also intend to provide more frequent updates on BB10 than I could on the PlayBook. The PlayBook sales disappointed us all, and developers like me have been very dismayed by the level of piracy, with evidence that more people pirated the app than honestly purchased it. If BB10 sales meet our hopes, and protection against piracy proves sufficient, we have a chance of making enough money from our efforts that we can actually keep supporting the products in a fashion that serves everyone well.

    nappp, umm... no? Not sure where that question is coming from.

    I mean, I have two apps on the PlayBook, one of them being White Noise and the other being Battery Guru.

    White Noise is already on BB10 as well, and Battery Guru will be as soon as they approve it.

In the updated BlackBerry World we now have separate entries for old BBOS, PlayBook, and BB10 versions of the app. Somehow, in adding the metadata for Battery Guru for BB10, when I split out the old PlayBook entry I must have copy/pasted the name "White Noise" into the title.

    Fixed! (May take a day or three for them to approve, and a day to propagate through.)

    BlackBerry World - Battery indicator
    Installed this app and suffered the worse battery drain since owning the Z10. I went from 75% to 5% in the space of 4 hours and I am currently playing around with my phone on WIFI only. Uninstalled it, recharged, and things are back to normal. Love the app but not sure about the drainage.

    Yep, same here although the drainage wasn't quite as bad on mine but still drained the battery in about 8 hours when my normal battery life is about 16 hours
