Just want to suggest to have a battery analyzer with battery charge/discharge information (maybe something like the battery in Android settings?) and battery consumption by applications

Or maybe some third-party application like Battery Usage apps in N9 which is extremely useful.

Right, the N9 had an app called Battery usage which gave the power consumption by application. It was an amazing app! I sent a message to the devs who told me that it was not planned to port the app to the Jolla phone unless somebody pay for this.

This would be great. I would really like to see some details on the battery drain over time, including information about when the screen was on and which data connection was active / being used.

i had a battery analyser on n9, as a user it gave me very little information, besides its impact on daily usage was about 5-10%. these days i use top to check processes.

In my opinion on N9 / N950 for MeeGo-Harmattan (as well for the mighty N900 in Maemo 5 here it was free app) the BatteryGraph-app was the most usefull to check whether there is a problem with too much power consumption. Somehow this was a great approach to show graphically how fast the battery drains, if it's a faulty battery or if the battery is getting old. This was a payed app for MeeGo. The other okay app for N9 / N950 was the app called Battery Usage (it was also available for Symbian). Actually I do know the developer personally. Once I asked him if he would like to port the MeeGo & Symbian Qml-code to Sailfish but he gave me the answer that he isn't in favor of them even thought he is from Finland. I guess it's due to the reason that Jolla doesn't yet have a payed app store. Anyhow, I think Lighthouse, Hunger Meter and Battery monitor devs could think on a graphical approach which would be really nice!

Did you have a look at "Hunger Meter" from the Jolla Store? It doesn't display usage per application, though (I doubt this is technically feasible).

Also "Lighthouse" might be an interesting app for you, in order to monitor CPU usage by process, or "Crest".

The battery monitoring app that draws a discharging/charging curve seems to be the Battery monitorby Radeek on Openrepos.net.

The voltage values are shown as raw values, but other than that it is good way to see discharge curves on various situations.

Simple Charge monitoring app by @kimmoli is also something to try for...
