The Clarus Battery is pretty nice. Very minimalistic and it looks great. Very accurate too. Plus, if you click on the left side (the one with %), it takes you to your battery usage, click on the right side (battery temp) it takes you to the settings of the program

I've tried a lot of battery widgets (and passed on a ton of them)
I'm pretty stunned to see so many of you recommending battery widgets that require full internet access rights. You do realize that they chew up your battery faster because they're using the internet access to pull adds/transmit phone data about you over the wire, right?

I currently use battery life... it's, so far, been the one that's worked best for me. It requires no special rights and has a nice small footprint. Quick battery is really nice too though I wish it had a better looking widget. I'm not a fan of 1x1 widgets but it's 'ok' as far as that goes. I do like that you can set it's tap feature to go to a wide variety of different useful things. Would be nice if BatteryLife and Quick Battery got together and mixed their widgets and features

Another good looking one that doesn't require any special rights is Battery Solo Widget... very classy looking. Giving it a try myself. According to it's press it doesn't drain the battery like some do.

When I use one of these, I use Battery Indicator, which is not a widget but displays the percentage in the notification area always, and gives one-tap access to battery usage information. Very light, none of those nasty permissions that elnator mentions.

I don't actually need it with a Cyanogen custom ROM, as that can also give numeric battery data in the status bar, but it's good for stock Eris/close to stock custom ROMs.

I had an addon that put a percentage remaining number into the standard battery icon, on the right side of the notification bar. Worked perfectly, looked great, took no additional space. Unfortunately, when I changed ROMs last week I forgot to make note of it and now cannot find it.

Alas! I've searched various combinations of terms -

Just installed and uninstalled Battery Widget from Marketplace three times and Amazon once because I didn't know that Widgets need to be added to the phone. I'm kind of new at this so I've got a lot to learn. Any I went to the geekyyouto site and there was the info about widgets. I even discovered some other things which can be added via the menu add function in the process of adding the widget.

I don't know whether this works any better of worse than the others. I might save missed seeing it mentioned here.

I didn't see anything about Internet permission, which I learned about right here while checking this thread before signing up.

I'm hoping this means it won't run the battery down.

Anyone else familiar with this widget?
