BatStat Battery Widget

BatStat is a widget for Android (2.1. or higher) which displays all essential battery information at a glance:

- Battery Level (and if AC is currently plugged in or not)
- Battery Voltage
- Battery Temperature

According to the current status of the battery different icons are used to visualize the level (full, middle, low, empty) and temperature (cool, normal , hot)

Switching between °C and °F is supported from version V1.1 on by just tapping once at the widget.

How to activate the widget?

  1. Download the widget from the android market (you can use a barcode scanner and the code on the right)
  2. Click on a free place at your home screen until the menu appears
  3. Select "Widgets"
  4. Select "BatStat"
  5. The 1x1 sized widget is placed at the free home screen position
