Battery Genie enables you to see the battery status of all your devices, and receive low battery alerts on your desktop.
Keep an eye on your devices' battery level and automatically get alerts when it's time to recharge.
Grabbing your phone or tablet when you're leaving the house, only to realize that the battery is almost at zero can be a real bummer. Have Battery Genie alert you on your PC or Mac when your device's battery level is getting low to avoid being stranded with a dead battery.
After installing the Chrome extension on your PC or Mac, head to the Google Play store to download the corresponding Android app on all your devices (http://goo.gl/cFCrD5). That's it! From now, any time you want to check on the current battery level of a device, simply click on the icon in your Chrome toolbar.
For each device, you can set at which level the app should alert you of a low battery via a Chrome desktop notification. You can also configure alerts on the devices themselves (say, to get alerted on your phone when your tablet is about to run dry).
1. Download the Chrome extension
1. Download the app on all your Android devices (http://goo.gl/cFCrD5)
2. On each device, open the app and follow the short connection process
- Does my phone need to be on the same WiFi network as my PC/Mac?
Nope, not at all. Syncing the battery levels of all your devices works automagically over the Internet.
- How's the battery usage of the app? Does it eat more battery than it saves?
The app only updates the device's battery status if it actually changed by at least 5%, which ensures that it has close to zero impact on your device's battery. In fact, it might even save you some battery, as you don't have to turn on your screen to check if it's time to recharge.
