    Hi there

    Does anyone know how you can see which widgets are using how much battery power?

    Any anyone know difference between "DashClock" widget and a stock weather widget that ships with Samsung? I just replaced the stock one with the cooler "DashClock" and weather extension. But I kinda feel like my battery is draining faster. Not sure if it's really because of it.

    Anyone know?

    I think the default battery app will show how much battery a process is using. You also could look and see what the refresh intervals are on dash clock. If the samsung app was set to update every hour and dash clock is set to every 15 minutes, you will definitely get more battery drain.

    The refresh option will be located in the dask clock settings.

    I looked everywhere but there's no settings/ option for refreshing intervals in Dash Clock. I checked every section there is, nothing.

    Any idea if there really is such an option in that widget?

    Dash clock is only a clock, you need to look in whatever weather plugin you're using with dash clock to change the update settings

    I get that. But even the extensions have no section of any such options like "update intervalls" or anything where you can see how much battery it's using.

    Just curious if anybody knows if the DashClock weather extension is a battery hog or same as stock weather widget...
