App Description

Does the phone run out of battery quickly? Does the phone always die at crucial moment? This app extends many extra hours to the battery life by managing Internet connection intelligently and in the background.

More Than 10,000,000 Downloads!

You don’t need to manually turn on/off the Internet connection anymore. This app extends battery life by using a smart algorithm to turn on/off the Internet connection, reduce battery consumption and data usage, but still keep the important background data synchronized.

  1. Auto manage 3G/4G/WiFi connection in the background
  2. Show battery level and usage in the status bar
  3. Efficient & easy to use

What customers are saying:

Installed 2 Battery Pro & got 5 DAYS. UNBELIEVABLE! Spent hours on setup for xx & only about 5 minutes with 2 Battery Pro. Would not have believed this was possible if I had not experienced it myself. (Marvin Jackson)

I had another, “easier”, battery saver installed on my new Neo V on Jan 18th. It consistently turned on background traffic and connection to mobile network costing me about 1MB/24h. 2 Battery saved my data package, not 1 Kb wasted! Needless to say battery performance improved by 30%-35%.Thank you! (Foivos L)

My battery life on HTC sensation is around 3-4 days now compared to 24 hrs before All other apps which I tried before, suck big time. Thumbs up! (patrick)

This is great. I had xx which worked well, but this makes it last literally like 3 hours longer. (Kelby)
