Does Battery % in Notification Bar make you Neurotic or stressed?
I found myself obsessing about battery drain when I had the % listed in the notification bar up top.
I found my phone use was much more enjoyable when I didn't see those 2 digits decreasing.
Am I the only one?
Do I need therapy?
PS: Does showing the % in the bar or using power widgets drain the battery faster?

The text form of it works on all Launchers and any Lock Screen that supports global Widgets.
However, the little red #'s (Badge Notifications) which is also handled by "Missed It!" is currently an exclusive feature of Nova Launcher & WidgetLocker (as such are my favorite Launcher & Lock Screen replacement Apps).
Here's an in-depth guide to get it all working--> [HOW-TO] Guide to Global Badge Notifications

Speaking of Neurotic...
Friday night I went and watched Neurotic a play in their final fair well gig. Drummer GJ, is a good friend of mine...
Battery % doesn't really bother me, just more like watching paint dry.

Re: Does Battery % in Notification Bar make you Neurotic or stres
I was a little neurotic the first couple of weeks, but it became apparent that I rarely even get to 50% usage in a normal day, so I don't really worry now.
That said, the battery icon in the nav bar is disingenuously "overconfident" in its reading. Which is a shame. If the icon were close to truthful, I would shut off the percent reading.
