Default Battery Percentage Widget?

Does anyone know of an app that will simply display the battery percentage remaining in numbers with the percent sign and nothing more? I am looking for something that either does not include any other graphic or information or one where the graphic and additional information can be disabled.

Thanks for any information that can be provided.

Widgets instinctly consume more battery, as they are working all the time in the background. if you want to see only percentage, without affection the battery consumption I would recommend "battery indicator pro"

About as simple and small app you can find: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.exiashio.BatteryStatusText&feature= search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5leGlhc2hpb y5CYXR0ZXJ5U3RhdHVzVGV4dCJd

Works very well.

If you have ICS or later, there is a menu item to check under "Power Saver" that will display the battery percentage on the notification bar. If you have an older OS (GB or earlier), you can use Battery Indicator which will do the same thing. It's not a widget and is a very small app, it just takes the system info for battery and puts it on the top bar where you can see it.

Battery Notifier (Big Text) has a tiny footprint, trivial permissions and shows the battery percentage up in the notification bar... in BIG NUMBERS.

You can use "BattStatt Pro". It displays battery charge in a very simple way - without any graphic.
