In Launcher/Settings/Battery Manager there is a fair amount of Battery Related functionality.
I can't get Battery Manager on the Home screen as a Widget, but I can get Settings up as a widget.
So you could put Wettings up as a widget and tap on it and then tab on Battery Manager.
My droid x only reads in 10% segments. I have never seen like 62% and so on. Did you find an app that addresses this?
Motorola only seems to use the 10% drivers so you will not see battery read 1% increments ... There has been apps that was suppose to be able to display 1% battery level but I also heard they wasn't reliable to be accurate.
I use BattStatFree that does well....
