    Anyone run this? I just found it but it says to charge your phone completely then let it run till its dead to get a accurate reading..I didn't think it was good to let a battery run completely dead on a phone?

    That's ludicrous. Its fine. Not that the reading would be effected but it certainly wont damage the phone.

    i dont know if i trust this widget. yesterday, i had 3 quarters of battery on my home screen according to the small pic, but the widget said i only had 50% left. anyone else seeing this? i find this to be happening a lot, that the pic looks like it has more juice than the widget

    You have to let the widget run for awhile to let it get use to the usage and battery.

    I use 'My battery status' which just has the percentage in the notification bar, which is spot on.
