    yeah sadly they all seem to be counter intuitive, they show you how much battery is left while simultaneously draining the battery...not cool...I stick with the one in the notification bar.

    Agreed with above.

    If I had to pick one, it'd be the one HTC put out (check market).

    I have resigned myself to having a shortcut to Spare Parts on my home screen, and click into that and go to battery percentage to see what the battery percentage is. It takes a couple clicks, but doesn't drain the battery like the widgets.

    Same here. Usually the indicator at the top is good enough, but when curiosity gets the best of me, I just make a couple taps and boom, there it is.

    The HTC widget DOES use up battery at a noticeable rate. Took a few days to realize what was happening. Once I got rid of it, I was back to normal.

    Battery indicator by darshan computing, it sits in the notification bar and shows % left. No noticable drain after a week or so, tried the curvefish widget, but it seemed to use up the battery faster. For $.99 it'll change colors when you get low but its free otherwise.

    I had a app on my palm 700p called Power Hero. it was amazing app, and i haven't found an app like. So i would like an app, that gives you that option like Power Hero. an option like to auto turn off a feature, like turning off Bluetooth, or Network and so on. And the best option tell you the time remaining left on the battery.

    Any Ideas Thanks

    "battery widget" by mippin.com - shows percentage, tap it and it brings up GPS, display, wifi and bluetooth connection on/off.

    Thank you a million times! That is what I have been wanting from day one! Now I don't have to unlock my phone to see how much battery % I have left.

    I also agree it seems to be the best for conserving the most battery. I've used Battery Widget, as well as HTC's battery widget and they both seemed to drain my battery a little faster than I'd like.

    Are you saying that the CurveFish one costs .99 to show the extra info? I don't think that is right... I have that one, and got it to do all of that for free...

    Just tap on it, then go into the settings menu, also you can change the color settings at will...

    Unless they changed something?

    No. Curvefish eats your battery, BatteryIndicator costs $.99 for the Pro version

    On the market search : SD card Memory widget and Internal memory widget.

    I use both of those and they are the ones pictured. Like them a lot.
