    Default Battery monitor obsession

    I just downloaded badass battery monitor a few days ago and it's a great app. However I now find myself obsession over the number its displaying in my notification bar. When I had the iphone I had this problem also. If I turned on the battery percentage icon I would obsess over how much was left and just watch it tick away. So I eventually turned it off and stopped worrying about how much battery I have left. And just enjoyed using my phone.

    What are your views on the subject. Turn off battery monitor and stop worrying? Or watch it like a hawk?

    I just learned stop worrying and love Android. I hate those battery mods that show the exact percentage (they look good though) I do plug it in whenever I can though.

    I'm also obsessed about the battery percentage, so I just leave the stock battery meter there. Its better to just enjoy what the phone is capable of, than to stalk the battery meter. Lol.

    I uninstalled the battery monitor last night. I've been having withdraws all morning. But it's for the best.

    Now that I've uninstalled the monitor I keep opening the stock battery usage screen to check the percentage and usage information. Guess I relapsed lol

    Is there anyone who advocates watching the battery % tick away?

    I dont advocate wathching battery %

    LoL ,dude maybe if you wasnt checking out your battery% so much it would last longer

    Also I know its easy to kinda get OCDed about it and you relapsed but sounds like your getting stressed out again.

    I fiqure you have already done all the basic steps to reduce your battery consumption tho by now .

    How long does your battery last again without it being plugged in ? Also how heavy or light of use ? screen on time ?

    I don't check it constantly. When I say watch the % tick away I mean while I'm using. Like while I'm browsing or playing a game.
