    Default Who's Running Battery Doctor?

    I just installed Battery Doctor to see how it works. I am not really having any problems with my Moto X but I wanted to see what's using the battery.
    Do you just run the app from time to time? What's the best way to utilitize this app and what are the consequences if the battery saver mode is set to ON?

    Thanks for your comments.

    Use Wakelock Detector. It detects what apps wake your device from sleep. It has CPU wakelocks, screen wakelocks and triggers. It tells you what apps are waking the device from sleep and how many times they do it. One of the best apps available for seeing battery drain.

    With battery doctor I get 22-23 hours on a single charge. I love it.

    Be aware now that you have to have root access now for Wakelock Detector to work properly under KitKat

    I installed this app based on a referral. It definitely increased my usage so that I get over 24 hours usage on one charge. My usage is moderate so I am very pleased with this app. I like the trickle charge function as well as the tone it sounds when it completes the battery charge.

    Anybody know how to turn off the trickle stage reminder tone and notification?

    Go into settings on the top right. (3 dots on the top right.) From there you can change whatever setting you want

    Yeah, I got that, I was just curious about when its fully charged, and on active display notifications. It says,"unplug now, trickle stage complete," and alerts a tone and notification still after changing sound settings, etc. I hope you understand what I am trying to say DC.

    I turned off those settings when i first installed BD hoping it would remove the trickle charge notification, but it doesn't. As far as I can tell, you can't turn off the trickle charge notification.....

    And that is a big issue as it slows down the charging times massively. On mine 30% left it was taking 3.5hrs or more to charge from the wall, not good. With BD stopped it took 1.5hrs as you would expect. For that reason i uninstalled it but i miss the handy widgets :/

    Can you go Settings>Active Display>Select apps and un-check Battery Doctor?

    I used to use BD but don't anymore, for a couple of reasons--
    --I do have Clean Master on my phone, and it has functions that duplicate some of what BD does, such as clearing out running apps. For that matter, I believe Greenify does a similar function, though not as aggressively on a non-rooted device.
    --I now prefer whenever possible to charge my phone when it is powered down. It charges faster that way, as the charging circuits are not being diverted to running phone functions. As for the trickle charge thing, most modern phone charger modules (along with the circuitry in the phone itself) should do much the same thing anyway as far as backing off the charge as it reaches a full 4.2 V to help prevent stressing out the battery. Your Moto charger that came with the phone certainly will have that ability. That said, the reminder ping that BD gives off when charging is done is a useful tool since it's better for the battery's longevity to unplug it when it reaches 100%.

    In any case, if you really sense that BD helps out your device, by all means keep using it. I'm not certain I saw that much benefit, and with my phone setup and usage habits I get plenty of time from a charge for my needs.

    I have battery doctor and it's always telling me I am low on memory and my phone gets hot. My phone is running slow and I don't know what to do. I've contacted support and have not replied to 5 messages yet. Any suggestions?

    Dunno which 'support' you contacted, but there are website, email and feedback links on the play store entry for the app:

    OK old topic but one quick caveat with Clean Master and Battery Doctor (which the dealing with finally made me uninstall them and go with Greenify): you can put apps in the Ignore list, but sometimes you have to research to Ignore some system-type processes that can be Ignored that "feed" the apps. When I was using CM and BD, Waze would sometimes just die in the middle of a drive. Turned out that Waze dies if it doesn't see your phone having a working GPS in a timely manner. I had to figure out which "background" process to Ignore. And the interface makes that hard as it truncates longer names at a certain number of characters. I never did figure out what was causing my texts to be delayed by up to a half hour but that went away immediately after I uninstalled both (I tried several SMS apps and all had the same problem). I'm much happier with Greenify.

    Battery Doctor is one of the most worthless, horrible, evil Apps ever written for Android. Anything by Cheetah Mobile is horribile.

    To understand why Battery Doctor and other such apps are so bad go back in this thread and read posts # 3, 23, 27, 31, 33 & 180 - especially 180. http://androidforums.com/index.php?threads/896663/

    Actuality, it's a good idea to read the entire thread. Lotsa excellent information.
