Is there an expanded battery meter widget on the Droid X
Meaning what, exactly? Are you looking for a meter that will read in increments other than 10% increments like the stock meter?
I'd like to find a battery meter that measures in more accurate intervals.
I use Gauge Battery Widget, but it still reports in 10% increments. It has a nice automotive type gauge widget that displays on your homescreen. It can also display your battery percentage in your notification bar, a lot easier to interpret than the stock battery icon.
Your DX only reports battery readings in 10% increments. Any application that you may find reads from the DX, so it can't actually give you a better reading than what it's being given. You won't be able to find a battery widget or monitoring application that gives you a more detailed reading and actually have it be accurate at the same time. If you find one that gives you more, "accurate," readings, it will only be working through guesses and assumptions.
Unless someone has found a way of reading the battery in a different fashion, without going through the usual channels, there isn't a way to actually do this. I want more accurate readings too, but last time I checked, it isn't technically possible for the DX right now.
^^^^what he said, but since I like guesses, Battery Left!
