    Try battery indicator in the market. Ironcially, this battery apps and widgets use battery power. Only a little but nevertheless.

    Is there any way to get the widgets to display 1% increments instead of 10%. My droid Eris showed 1% and I would like to get that back but I can't find a setting for it anywhere. I am using Viz Battery widget which is the same one I used on my Eris.

    I'm evaluating "EcoCharge" and have used "BatteryTime Lite" for some time. BTL will give you a widget with the % and it can also go on the status bar.

    There is a way to look at battery percent without hurting your battery through constant measurement.

    Get the (free) app Any Cut:

    Any Cut > New Shortcut > Activity > Battery Info > OK > Exit Any Cut

    Now you have a shortcut on your home screen (called: Battery Info) that displays battery level (percent), Voltage & temperature. This is just a hidden menu & not a new program... ;)

    I tried that and it just creates an icon. You actually have to click it to get these readings.

    I doubt that's what most people want.

    Figured I'd save people the time from going through this process.

    This is how the Android system works, a constant % listed will drain the battery faster. This way when your bar seems low you can click the icon & get an exact reading, with the benefit of temperature info & limited additional battery drain.

    Cyanogen discovered this, not me & that is why he had it is an option, with the default being off.

    Ok, still, I think most people would much prefer an icon that shows the power rather than having to click on something.

    Do any of these show percentages in 1% increments?

    When I had an incredible, BatteryLife was showing by single percent. On my X, it's showing by 10%. BatteryTimeLite is also showing by 10%.

    The battery info shortcut that SiXiam said also shows by 10%.

    Seems like Moto must be forcing the battery to reported in 10% increments, no?

    i see now..it makes sense it would drain a bit more battery just to show the percentages in 1% increments

    I doubt it. Certainly not anything that would impact anyone.
