Battery meter app

Is there a battery meter app that will replace the default battery meter in the notification bar that reads what percent it's at? If not, is there a good app to recommended as a widget?

In order to change anything in your notification bar, you would need to take steps that will void your warranty. There are, however, several good battery widgets in the market. One that I've used recently that I liked is by curvefish, though if you search for battery widget, you can get lots of options.

I use Battery Left Widget. Once it is calibrated it is quite accurate.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

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....

I use Battery Improve which is great  since my battery now lasts the entire day without being charged despite frequent usage.

I have found that the app called Mini Info (this was recommended to me by the VZ sales person) works really well for battery % readout along with memory usage readouts.

I use Circle Battery Widget (Free on Market) and it does well.
