    I'm looking for an app that'll allow the default status bar on my Droid to show the battery life in percentages.

    I KNOW I've seen a screenshot of this somewhere, but I can't seem to do a search here or find it on the Marketplace.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    It might have been a screen replacement app like ahome, panda, or simillar. They have lots of customization. I'm not aware of anything that lets you alter the default notification bar this way. There are a lot of widgets that display the way you are asking.

    I use battery status-free. I don't use the percentage feature on the status bar but I know that it has an option to turn it on. It won't replace the regular battery icon on the top right but it'll add a new one on the top left.

    the app "battery status bar" will show battery level percentages in the status bar. It only reports in levels of 10%, but that is because that is all android provides. unfortunately android does not provide EXACT percentages :(

    Battery Indicator seems best here. I like % by the digit in the status bar. Incredible here.

    I agree, I was using something else, battery check or something but it only showed as a widget, not in the status bar.

    BI shows the exact % for me in the status bar on the Epic but if it rounded by 10% I wouldnt care. I doubt I will ever see like 7% anyway because if it gets down to 10% its pretty much gonna die very shortly anyway - to the nearest ten % should be more than enough info you need about your battery. Only usefulness if you want to check if it is 100% full, when I charge it with the charge - it only goes to about 98%, when I use a seperate charge and put the battery in I get 100%
