    Essential App!

    This is just one of those apps that should come "right out of the box"! Great detail and very useful for those of us who use their Nook mostly for apps and online media.

    Highly recommended as a "Must Have App"!

    LOVE THE DETAILED INFO THIS BATTERY APP GIVES

    I had another battery app but retired it and chose this one- now I know what's using the battery the most, how long until full and I can choose larger icons for at a glance checks... this is the best battery app...

    Great battery monitor!

    This is a great app for monitoring your Nook battery. It might show too much data that you don't really need. I really like the percentage icon in the bottom corner. Much better than the battery icon.

    Great app!

    Perfect battery app.

    I like that this publisher utilized the task bar to make a widget that displays the actual value amount of the battery.

    Love it!

    Fantastic!

    At first I was curious, and after,I was really impressed that I always knew how long I could read before recharging. This is a great app!

    Sorry

    Not worth much, wast of space. Overlay loses position on screen. Yes it gives info you didnt have but who cares the nook has its owm bat meter that tells you all you need to know. Get an app killer if your not using an app in the list kill it and save resorces. Over all not a big help!

    Great App

    Much better than Track Your Battery app which I archived. Easy to use, plenty of info at your fingertips. My only comment is that I would like more options for which I can set colors and alarms. Highly recommended.

    Great app!

    I had been having trouble with the battery life on my NOOK Color for a while. Read about thus app on one of the B&N boards, and thought I'd give it a try. I'm so glad I did! It shows you where the big battery drains are coming from and gives you suggestions on what to do to fix it. I agree that an app like this should be standard on the NOOK and come with it, but 've been very happy with my $1.99 purchase!

    Very handy

    Very handy and very easy to configure. I mostly (99%) read on my HD+. With this little gadget I can have a small indicator at the bottom left (or where ever) of the screen to glance at so when I'm done I know to put the charger on. You can configure it so that it does not distract yet easy to see. The the GSam Battery Monitor -Icon Pack is a must have also. You won't be sorry.

    Great app - VERY informative. Wish they would have included the overlay ability without having to get the add-on. I do find the battery status indicator in the notification icon area to be so dim that it's difficult to read without having to open up the notification (wish there was a way to adjust the brightness) - a minor gripe, really.
