    Just out of curiosity, what battery widget do you guys use?

    Personally i tried all the "most downloaded" ones and all of them were ugly or bloated.
    The only one i liked is the one called "Battery Widget" by Park Jinwoo
    Simple, effective and light!

    What about you guys? Which one you use and why you prefer that one over the others.

    I like Badass.
    Tried Juice defender, but it does nothing you cant do in a few easy moves.

    I use the battery widget in Beautiful Widgets. It has different skins you can use for the widget.

    I used to use Gauge Battery Widget but I don't need a widget any more after romming and theming a nice icon for the notification bar.

    I use Battery Monitor Widget.
    It shows what only very few battery apps do: Discharging and charging current in a graph by time.

    I think all the different time-to-0% estimates battery monitor widget gives are pretty neat. It has avg 100%-0% time, also shows you time until you're dead based on your avg since unplug, your all time avg, or a mix of unplugged/alltime avgs.

    The usage graphs are really nice for finding battery draining wake-locks and other batt draining things.

    I use the battery widget from HTC Sense. It tells me the battery level down to the percent.

    For my tablet I use the Dual-Battery widget. My tablet has a keyboard dock that has a battery. This is the only widget I found that tells me the battery level of both my tablet and keyboard dock.

    I use "Battery Left". Its a widget size battery that turns transparent as it depletes. Its pretty good as to the actual battery life left. You can have displayed in the widget: Time left, percentage left and temp. (There are other settings too.) Also, it displays in the status bar.

    BatteryLife by Curvefish. Low memory. Looks good. And accordibg to Power Tutor uses less battery than some of the other popular battery widgets I tested. Can be customized. I have used some other curvefish apps.

    I change widgets depending on theme! Which one looks best! LOL. My most used are Minimalistic and Battery Text though.
