Product Features

  • Six sets of icons
  • For use with GSam Battery Monitor
  • Configure the icon using the Battery Icon Theme preference
  • Show icon in the status bar, overlaying the stock battery icon

Product Description

An icon pack for GSam Battery Monitor (all editions). Currently 4 sets of icons, though others may be added in the future.

This provides additional icon themes for GSam Battery Monitor, and also includes Overlay Icon support allowing any icon to overlay the default battery icon. The location and size of the overlay is fully adjustable, allowing you to place it in just the right location on your device.

1) Circle - Big Visible Numbers
This theme provides a larger more readable version of the default GSam Battery Monitor icon.

2) Ice Cream Sandwich Theme
This theme conforms to the standards for notifications in Ice Cream Sandwich (Google's latest version of Android). Icons are supposed to be simple and white - Android then automatically dims the icon when in the notification bar.

3) Plain White Numbers
Simple white numbers on a transparent background with a small white drain indicator above the number

4) ICS Blue
Simple blue numbers using the ICS theme - this is great for using as the overlay icon as it cleanly matches the blue clock.

5) CM Inspired
Inspired by the CyanogenMod 10.1 default Circle Battery (but more readable), this theme fits in well with any Holo themed device. It has a very smooth charging animation which can be somewhat memory and CPU intensive - so it may not play nicely with older devices.

6) Just Numbers
By popular request from HTC users, this theme simply has white numbers. It works well as an overlay icon on top of the default HTC battery widget. Shrink it down to fit inside the battery icon, and set Background to fully transparent.

Once installed, you can configure the icon using the Battery Icon Theme preference in the GSam Battery Monitor preferences.

1) Open GSam Battery Monitor > Select Preferences > Battery Icon Theme > and choose one of the icons from the icon pack. These will be listed underneath the 'Get More Themes' link.

2) To use the Overlay support, select the 'Overlay Standard Battery Icon' preference.

For information about creating your own Icon Packs, see our blog.

NOTE: Whenever you install an Upgrade of the icon pack, you may need to re-select the icon in the GSam Battery Monitor Icon Theme preference.

3.0 out of 5 stars It Works But I Don't Care for the Marketing Strategy October 21, 2012
By Dennis
Verified Purchase
The biggest point to running GSam Battery Monitor is to get a numerical display of the battery strength in place of the minimally informative default analog battery icon. But to get that you must buy this icon pack in addition to the monitor itself. I don't much appreciate being forced to buy an add-on to doing something the product should do in the first place, and so I will give this only three stars. However, once installed, it does perform as advertised, and this combination of products is the only way I know to get this functionality, which as fast as a Kindle Fire drains its battery is rather important.

Kindle Fire Owners: Be sure to buy this through your Kindle Fire's Amazon app store. I bought it using the Silk Browser and it never did download, forcing me to delete it from my account, then buy it a second time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good add-on for the Badass Battery monitor March 4, 2012

Much better to see a large number giving me the exact percentage of the battery status of my Kindle Fire rather than just a plain old battery Icon. Thanks to Dan the Man for his step by step help. It was not an intuitive set-up for me but his guiding made it a snap. See his review if you need help. Thanks Dan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Paid Version Problem Resolved March 3, 2012
Verified Purchase
When I first received the paid version of Badass Battery Monitor, I could not get the this Icon Pack two function with it.
If this is your problem try this.
Go to the Badass Battery Monitor MENU at the bottom of the screen.
Activate the "Preferences" option.
Change the "Battery Icon Theme" to "Circle - Big Visible Numbers".
Then check the "Overlay Standard Battery Icon" check-box.
It worked like a charm for me. I Hope it helps you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Update - Really? Only one more theme? February 12, 2012
Verified Purchase
Only one more theme for 99 cents?
I really expected more.
Am I missing something in the settings?
I enabled the new theme no real difference. Maybe I. am missing something.
Please update description on how to use.
I think there must be more value here than I am seeing.

---- Update----

Theme is now working and is great.
I have the paid version of the app and untill next upgrade this theme only works with the free version.
Once I removed the paid version (which is great and worth buying) and installed the free version the theme works great.
If you have the paid version do as I did and revert back to the free version till the upgrade comes out.
Actually I may just put the paid version back on knowing an upgrade is comming.
Eather way this theme is cool and worth buying.
4 stars will upgrade to 5 once upgrade comes out.
Update is out, works great
Upgraded to 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great add on to a great product February 29, 2012
Verified Purchase
This add on to the base product, Badass Battery Manager Kindle Fire Edition, is really a great enhancement.

I almost missed how to get it working.

1.Buy it here. Then install it on the Kindle Fire.

2. Go to Preferences and choose the icon from Preferences \ Battery Icon Themes. It is the "Circle - Big Visible Numbers" - as the last in the list.

3. Go back to Preferences and check "Overlay Standard Battery Icon" and "Show Overlay Only When Status Bar is Visible" and "Show Notification Icon."

At that point the icon in the upper right corner shows the remaining battery percentage rather than the graphic bar.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING! February 25, 2012
Verified Purchase
THANK YOU! Worth the 99¢! I have Bad Ass Battery Monitor app and this theme is great! I like the idea I can see my battery percentage instead of a vague battery Icon! I also like how the battery theme goes from blue to green when the battery gets low. If you give this a one star review, you don't know how to use it. Read the directions. Its not a stand alone app. You need also need to have the Bad Ass Battery app.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic February 25, 2012
Verified Purchase
There is indeed only one extra icon pack in this purchase. What makes it amazing is that if you use it on the kindle fire in conjunction with the free Bad Ass Battery Monitor, the icon will replace the existing battery icon in the upper right hand corner of the notification bar.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works as Advertised April 17, 2012
Verified Purchase
This product works great and I prefer the "number" to the original bar graph icon. The only issue I have is that the directions on how to get the numbers to display are not totally clear (at least to me). The reason for the 3 star review is that the number icon has a habit of disappearing every now and then and it has to be re-activated. Other than that, it is fine.
