    BatteryTime Pro.

    I think it was $0.99 from the market, simple but very effective! :)

    Dead simple app and all that you want: Battery Indicator.
    There is a free and payed version. It also indicates for how long is the phone unplugged.

    I don't think Battery Time Pro (or the Free one) displays this in the status bar?
    Battery Indicator does, and is free (although there is a Pro version too). I've just upgraded to the Pro version. I also like the way it will take you to the battery usage page with one click.

    If you meant to say Battery Time doesn't display the percentage on the status bar, then you're wrong ;). It does.

    And if you meant to say Battery Time doesn't display the unplugged time, then you're wrong ;). It does. You just have to expand your notification bar.

    Oh, I guess gazcarts meant to say "BatteryTime Pro".
    I dont know this app, so I have no opinion about that.

    Sorry for the confusion; I've edited my earlier post. I was referring to Battery Time Pro that d.knight99 mentioned. I now see it does give a percentage. However, I'm not convinced by its calculation of time remaining for different things, such as Idle time, talk time, etc.

    Battery Indicator Pro does all I need. I was using Battery Widget before, but prefer having the icon on the status bar. The fact I can also get to the battery usage page much quicker was icing on the cake.

    Regards

    Thanks guys. Battery indicator is just what I wanted. Although its got an oldskool look to it and doesn't quite fit in with the desires UI. Is there an alternative?
