    HTC battery Widget is in the market but not available under Get more HTC Widgets. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up.

    If it's the one that says its only for the hero and eris, that's been on there for a long time.

    Be careful, battery widgets can make your battery drain faster due to constantly polling the battery! Seems kinda strange that the battery widget drains the battery!

    Gauge Battery Widget is the best battery widget hands down.

    I've heard mixed reviews on this issue. Personally I used to use it on My droid Eris with 1.5, and stopped once 2.1 came around, I NEVER had any drain issues, but people reported differently on 2.1

    It is a fact that Batt. Widgets cause drain to your battery. I've been watching this HTC widget, and others in the past with TaskManager or OSMonitor. And every minute or so the widget jumps to 60% cpu usage to read gauge and show results. So I did a monitor on the process, and every hour it was jumping to 60% and using 3-4% battery on process_Start. So after 12 hours, you're looking at rougly 30% battery loss from widget activity. Needless to say, I stopped using all types of "active" updating widgets, including but not limited to, Facebook, Messaging, Friendstream, Battery, etc. My phone lasts much longer now. If i want to see the battery, i'll go to Settings > About my phone. Just my opinion though.

    I am a HUGE HUGE HUGE fan of Battstatt... so simplistic and classic looking.

    Battery Indicator by Darshan Computing is my preferred. Sits in the notification area, displays a percentage, and System Panel and Spare Parts both show it using 0% resources. It displays battery health, temp, and exact voltage of current charge. Even has a built-in "disable lockscreen" option. For $.099 you can get a higher resolution image and customizable 4-color (red/yellow/gray/green) indicators.

    (I'm not the dev, I just really love this app. If I could replace the built-in indicator with this thing, I'd do it in a heartbeat.)

    QR Code for those interested.

    Not to me it isn't. It doesn't look as good and was much more inaccurate. That's my opinion.

    I switched to the gauge cause Im a big gear hear and I also liked the looks, but it just gives your percentage, bat left takes truly around a week to get your bat stats down. The only reason i went back to bat left is I like knowing how long my battery has left in time not just percentage. Its more precise to tell me how long I have left on my bat and whether or not Ill need to charge or if i can get away with out.

    Not saying Gauge is bad, just saying not as useful for me.

    I personally use, sysmonitor. It gives you the choice of having "battery level, RAM memory, Internal memory, SD memord, cpu usage" as options of what to show in the task bar(I obv. use the battery) and it shows the battery perfect, SD card memory, ram usage(my main use other than the battery in the task bar) and internal memory. Over all best app for general info. It's perfect.

    It drained my battery. I use battery left now with it set to only update every half hr.

    Anyone use Battery Minder? Been using it for a while and don't think there is much battery drain but I could just be used to it.

    The OS sends out an update about the battery whenever it changes. There is no polling just has to wait for that update then change the displayed percent. The Darshan computing one does not poll. If they are polling, the widget was designed by an idiot.
