Android app increases battery life on rooted models
Just the other day, we told you that the number one gripe amongst cellphone users is battery life. And with more top-shelf models designed to make the battery off-limits to consumers, phone owners are limited to either using an external battery charger to keep their device powered up, or installing an app to perform some magic.

The One Power Guard Pro is an app designed to increase battery life for rooted Android devices. The simplest solution that the app offers will increase the stand-by time of the cell powering a phone. The app will also decrease the time it takes to charge up your phone or tablet while increasing its battery life. Have you ever felt your handset get as hot as a fourth of July firecracker and then watch the battery drain at a rapid pace? One Power Guard Pro will protect your phone from these battery hogging apps. There are multiple power saving modes, one for 6 different scenarios.

This is the first battery saving app that takes care of business at the kernel level which explains why it is for rooted phones only. In the meantime, you can click on the video below for more information on the One Power Guard Pro.

This app modifies your kernel. It's the same as having greenify and a custom kernel. So, ya.

That is what custom kernel can offer amongst many more sweet options.
BTW, I can charge at double rate with kernel I have in use.

S3 Default is 1000mah charging rate but custom kernel we can go up to any amount but its safe to be with 1300mah,not more than that! That is 30% faster which is pretty faster!
My S3 used to take 1 hour to charge 80% with this setting !
But that setting I uses for 6 months then got extra Battery Kit , after that I never charged my phone. When my phone reach 1% I pull down the back cover i put new battery from battery kit it again 100% ready to go ! :D
by that time I keep my old 1% battery in battery kit..
this I do vice versa .
that something I love from sammy :)

Yea I was with this setting and my battery had no problems !
So its not a fairy tale !

I hav rooted my s4 4.3 gt-i9500 day before yesterday and instead of giving me the battery life as mention in this article after root my battery was decreasing like a thirsty person drinking water. Even in stand by mode my battery was way down to 40% from 90% within a period of 50min.

Just use CPU Tuner in Simple and Powerful mode. It throttle down your phone in idle mode and keep the phone in max performance while you are using it.

This way i get an additional half day battery life from my phone. I don't have a S4 so i don't know whether it will work as well. I only rooted my Galaxy tab 7.7 after out of warranty.

Tried it on my rooted Razr Maxx. Can't comment on battery life, but using AI mode made things choppy and slow. Or rather, choppier and slower than usual.

Deep Sleep Battery Saver Pro works FAR BETTER than the One Power Guard Pro.

Just rooting and removing bloatware helped me save battery by around 25%.

Sony stamina mode is the best.

All these stupid rooted apps never work as expected.

I'm happy with what SONY has done on the Xperia Z1 :)
