    What's the best app out there that could tell me the % of battery left, time remaining and temp of the battery. (Free please)

    I like "Battery Indicator" - it's free - but it doesn't show "time left".

    The reason I like it is because it puts a tiny little battery icon in your status bar with the % left inside and that's it. No big honking widget taking up space on a screen. If you pull down the status bar it will show the temp also.

    I use "Battery Status Pro" (free). Shows % left (overall), then shows time left - per usage. For example, shows time left for standby, or for 2g talktime, 3g talktime, Internet Use (3G or WiFi), Video Playback, and Audio Playback.

    I'm currently using Battery Minder, but I have a suspicion that it may be eating my battery life so I wanted to try a new one out. Battery Minder also has the % in the status bar, and shows temp and time remaining. It's a good app, but the time remaining isn't accurate at all...when I first take my phone off the charger it tells me I have 1 day left of battery life, but as soon as it drops to 90% the app tells me I only have 12 hours of battery life left.

    I use the upgraded version of Battery Status Pro called "Battery Status Ultimate" lets you know the temperature as well as some more advanced information.

    Juice Plotter works pretty well in conjunction with Juice Defender.

    How did you get those apps to show the icon on your screen?

    Batter Indicatory (thanks Curt) is really nice. It displays on the notification bar. When you pull the bar down, it'll give you details on the last time it was plugged in, the temp, and other info. I prefer this instead of having a widget on the screen.

    one of my friend is using an app Droid Secure available in android market. Might be can be useful for you in telling the status of battery. The good thing is that This is absolutely free.
