    If I use the google gesture search and enter "BATTERY" it finds something in the setting called "Battery Info" which when clicked on gives about 10 lines of info (not the graph thing)

    BUT I can not find this by actually going through the settings.

    Just bugging me now, where is it?

    The battery USE is there (that comes up in the search as well) but not battery INFO, they are two different things.

    Its not a problem just annoying not to know.

    What do you need to know about your battery that isn't there?

    Depends on what version of Android you are running. I think that menu went away in one version. Try downloading one of the battery stat apps in the market.

    As far as I can find its the only place that says the % of the battery without plugging the charger in.

    Now I am thinking what else can be found thats "no longer there"?

    Did not know about the screen capture.

    One is the info screen and the other is the search results.
