    Yes, I'm from the south.

    Which battery widget do you fellow Eris users use? I saw that HTC made one, but I've been using the one that mPippin developed since I got my phone. It's nice that it monitors the battery and lets me turn on/off WiFi, GPS and BlueTooth or change my display options from one press.

    I was just curious which you guys recommend.

    All things being equal, I'll use an HTC widget before anyone else's just because I figure who knows more about widget-izing an HTC phone than HTC. There may be a fault in my logic, but it's my faulty logic and I like it. :)

    I use Battery by HTC. And I also use the GPS, WiFi, 3g and bluetooth widgets that came in the phone. For a while I was using another program to control all the 'radio' settings and then I deleted it (see first paragraph as to why).

    I am using the battery widget from mippin, inc as well. It is very unobtrusive and one touch to toggle gps, wifi and BT and also a shortcut to display settings. I hate a cluttered home screen and does away with all those toggle widgets.

    I use the HTC one, the built in meter isn't very good for telling exactly how much you have left 50% can look like the same thing as 35.

    I like one that's a bit bigger than the notification bar one because I'd like to be able to see it clearly without reading glasses on. :)

    +2 - In my mind, it's like pulling extra equipment in a trailer to tell you how much gas is left in the car. ;)

    May not be true, but that's how I see it.
