What's new in this version (1.3.1):
- shows elapsed time since unplugged
- added ScreenOn-Receiver for better time accuracy
ShowOff will show the current battery level as a notification as well as an optional estimate about the remaining running time (current or historic).
It's the smallest app in the market for this purpose (<25k), it's tiny, lightweight and has a small memory and processor footprint.
- Shows Battery level or remaining hours in notification, so the info can be seen without unlocking the screen.
- Can be made to startup at boot automatically.
- Optional "live countdown" to reduce calculated estimated by actual running time since the last level change.
- Estimated remaining time can be "historic" (average estimate over a long period of time - will need some time to calibrate) or "current" (will show you how long your battery will last, if you keep playing Angry Birds :).
- Features three icons (green / yellow / red), percent levels when to switch to yellow and red can be set.
- Contains two icon-sets, one dark, one light (especially for HTC Sense).
- Optional alarm-sound when certain percent is reached (once or repeating after every further percent change).
- Optional alarm-sound when battery is fully charged.
- Also shows battery status, temperature and health in notification.
- Shows the elapsed time since unplugged.
If you need fancy colors, great icons or other mumbo-jumbo, don't use this app, there are others way more colorful (and a lot bigger).
Note: If you use "Advanced Task Manager" and it kills ShowOff even though it's in the exclude list, make sure, you exclude the app ("ShowOff") as well as the service ("SOService"). (This is an ATM-issue, I can't do anything about.)
Note: If you show the remaining hours in the notification (number in red bubble), the number won't show if the hours reach "0". This is an Android-limitation.
If you have problems/FC, send me your logs (e.g. with "Log Collector") so I can fix it. There's no possibility to answer to comments in the market.

So far looks very good ...
All it did was repeatedly force close. Uninstall i1
Will be perfect if it shows time since unplugged.
Perfect and discreet. Battery unplug time shows as de- charge in notifications. i9000.
Does anyone. Excellent job.
Force closes every time, motorola cliq

Does what it should. Excellent job. HTC Evo Ps: didn't mean comment before.
"Lightest" yes, but the icon sux! Love the fact that its so "light". Certainly don't want something thats flashy or changes color and all, but can't it have a simple single colored icon (so that it does not become "heavi
