I was just thinking about it -
do those battery monitors apps that shows you the current % of battery left, drains the battery?
As far as I know, those apps have to mature the battery level every X min, so it causes the battery to drain faster... am I right?

Your mising the point of the app. People who use it want to know the current percentage on the live tile instead of having to go into the settlings. Yes, it will prob use a miniscule amount of power, but it's a tradeoff for having that information readily avail on the start screen (lock screen).

The battery app drains yes like every app, i think the question shoudl be if the battery app is a battery killer like a whatsapp. Generally, i dont think so, if you get the battery apps that are basic in its features, im sure it will not take up much battery. I have battery widget and i tend to have really good battery life lasting more than a day if i have to.
There are some high featured battery apps that seemed to drain my battery in the past, but im not sure if it was just a coincidence, but the battery widget app is no problem for me so i kept this one.

It's not a problem to have a battery app as it's very convenient to have a battery percentage info on your tiles. If you don't want it to drain your battery, go to Settings, Applications and under Background Task, block your battery app from keep on running in the background. That could save your battery...Nokia Lumia 620 - White
