    Hey all,

    I'm looking for the best application to display my battery percentage in the notification pane. Past experience tells me having one will decrease battery life, so I am looking for one that decreases battery life the least.

    Please let me know what you use and why. Thanks!

    I like this one, although battery percentage isn't the main function, it's a nice, clean looking indicator & the entire application is lightweight in resources consumed.

    Who knows which of these things is best? I use GSams and am very happy with it.

    Its not in the notifications bar, but I use a live wallpaper called battery nova live wallpaper to keep track of my battery. It hasn't seemed to affect my battery life thus far.

    That looked interesting, so I went and found Nova Live Wallpaper all by myself, just to find these scathing reviews:
    Would give it five stars if it dint slow my phone down so much
    Very beautiful, but slowed down an overclocked evo
    Slow phone down. Droid 2
    Super cool but it slows down my phone way too much
    Very pretty but slow on my phone
    Amazing, only problem is it slows down my home screen

    Oops. Big oops. I left the word ‘battery’ out of Battery Nova Live Wallpaper

    Very cool looking app that doesn't cause any problems and doesnt drain my battery!
    It looks amazing!

    That’s what happens when I have to find links all by myself...

    I recently got battery widget reborn!

    I like it so far, but it's saying I'll have to buy it after the trial version is done with.

    I'll test drive it the next few days.

    I definitely like it better than gsam. I thought that app was crap.
