    I have been trying out a few battery level widgets for the phone and all of them seem to suck a lot of juice... I know all widgets seem to suck a small portion of energy due to constant update but I am loosing on average about 1% every 3 minutes on some of them lol!

    Such applications/widgets that don't work for me are:
    Battery solo widget: Not so bad but looking to get better results
    Battery life/ curvefish : non updating/ runs like an app if killed by task killer
    Battery Widget / jh jeong : sucks 1% every 2-3 mins
    Battery Mix --- sucks power
    Battery indicator---- sucks power



    Looking for a battery widget that gives 1% increment loss and that doesnt run when screen is off...

    Circle Battery Widget is pretty nice.

    For something in the notification bar, try Battery Status.

    Check out Gauge Battery Widget by Tomas Hubalek. Gives you status bar, widget or both.

    does anyone know of an extended battery that I can buy? I am not concerned with the bulky ones. Any suggestions on brand/type/mhz?

    thanks!

    I use Battery Solo widget the paid version, I like it. When you say looking for better results what do you mean exactly?

    I used Gauge Battery Widget on my Optimus and now on my new E4GT and have never noticed any excess battery drain.

    I use Talking Battery Widget by FXRLabs. I have only had it installed for 2 days but it doesn't seem to affect the battery and is really nice.
