    I used the HTC Battery widget for months before rooting my Sprint HTC Hero and never experienced any excessive battery drain from it. My wife uses it on her Sprint HTC EVO 4G and has had no issues with it.

    The widget does not update constantly. It polls the battery charge percentage and other information every once in a while like when you wake up your handset, so it uses virtually no battery power.
