If your phone is always on (and let's face it, it is) there is a good chance your battery life is never as long as it would be convenient. We cannot change how long our batteries will last before the next charge, but it is possible to stay on top of your battery so you can predict the next time you need to plug in. In this collection of battery management apps, the goal is to present a group of apps that will not only let you keep track of how your device is delegating its power, but chose which settings are absolutely necessary and which ones are not to make sure your battery lasts as long as it can without allowing too much precious juice to dissipate in inefficient ways. These apps not only tell you what applications, processes and phone functions are draining battery, but offer alerts and personalized options for keeping you aware of your battery's performance at all times. Some apps even let you track your phones performance over a given amount of time, so you know just when your device is the most tasked and when it is not. Sometimes you cannot afford to deal with a dead battery, it is best to be ready for a low battery and even better to stop it ahead of time. Check out these apps and choose the app that best suits your purpose. Some are more robust than others, but each app has one primary function--making sure your phone works for you and not the other way around.
