The Kcast Gold Live! Widget occupies two cells per metal on your home screen.

You can add one widget per metal for a total of five widgets.

The widget only fetches data when the screen is on and based on the setting you select in “Update every”.  If this is set to one minute and the screen is set to never lock, the widget will consume a total of 1.44mb every day. This represents the highest possible rate of daily data consumption, a rate that is rarely attained in actual practice.  While the screen is off the widget will not consume any data.

The widget will not consume any extra battery power if the screen is off.  While the screen is on, even at the most frequent update rate (one minute), the battery should last for up to 95% of its rated normal time between charges.
