    i believe it is because one is going off of ten % reading and the other 20% ...not sure if this is def the problem and my only fix suggesstion is to get them that run the same %

    What ROM and theme are you using and what battery icons did you download?

    OP: Check out some themes to find some you like and then just replace yours. :) Ninjamorph is pretty handy to have if you're only going to be doing one or two icons.

    That would make sense I guess but it says under the download that it works for Droid X. I have the Apex 1.3 rom but that shouldn't change me battery % should it?

    it would only match perfect and stay the same if they are the same percent reading if my theory hold true...i had the same issue with my gf x and i just got her a different one and it worked...you can also change stuff you want by doing it manually using 7 zip and you open both themes on your computer using the archive next to each other and go into system then framework,apk then res then drawable.hdpi and drag and drop all the batt icons and readings from the icons you want to the theme you are running....pretty simple and this is how i do it provided that there are icons in a theme i like

    the only thing i can recommend is either finding one in droidpirate or doing it manually...unless someone with a little more knowledge can tell us how to stop them from changing going from ten to 20%

    he said he is on apex, that is why it is changing. I believe the only way to get it to report in 20% increments again is to change the xml file.... but personally, id rather keep it reporting in 10% increments and just find the .png images.
    a stock droid X reports in 20% increments from 100%-20% (then 15-10-5-0 I believe)
    apex reports in 10% increment
    the thing he installed from droid pirate that says its for the droid x im betting only had the 100-80-60-40-20 (and maybe the 15-10-5-0) icons in it. because thats what the droid x would NORMALLY show
    this could be verified by using winrar or 7zip to open the thing from droid pirate and looking at which icons are in the file.


    as for the OP - flyingfish... usually what I do is look around at all the themes out there and find the icons I want, when i find it, I download that theme, and extract the .png image files I want, then you can use ninjamorph to replace them. Unless you know how to build a .zip file to install them
