    Anyone know of a widget that shows the battery life in smaller increments, preferably 1% increments.

    i have "Batterylife" But it only tells you every 10% which is annoying to me.

    I'm researching this too. I've tried batterylife and Battery Status Pro and neither do it. I'm guessing this is a built in Droid feature which only allows 10% increments (although I did see 15% so I'm guessing it does 5% increments below 20%.)

    BatteryLeft, perhaps? I use that, it has to be calibrated first for it to work correctly. But it seems as if it does actual time left and a percentage derived from some algorithm. Idk!

    This isn't something the phone reports...it does it in 10% increments so anything an app says that's more "accurate" is an estimate.

    Exactly, I'd stayed away from any 1% apps.

    I'll take the phone's true reporting at 10% increments rather than a program's estimate at 1% increments.

    I have Battery Left and am extremely happy with it. Once you get it where it says "Accurate", it is right on the money.

    Battery Left...you have to calibrate it after you install. Completely charge your phone and then let the battery drain till the phone shuts off. Recharge and you are done. I am very happy with it. Shows battery in small increments and the amount of time left till it's discharged.

    Any widget that displayed the charge left in 1% increments would be a liar.

    I had Battery life on my Eris and it did 1% increments. I sent an email to the developers asking if it was the Droid X or could they update for the X & their reply was "make sure Battery Life is ignored in ATK". So basically they ignored me.

    Battery left... simply the best! ;) I just finished calibrating it today as I let my X die out. :) Yaaay!

    Battery left...love how you have options as to what shows in the widget. I've got the temp in there, pretty cool.
