    Default Battery Icon in dock bar

    I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a battery icon or widget that you can put in the bottom dock bar that shows the percentage of how much battery life is remaining? I am running stock android ver 4.0.3. I dont want it in the status bar or on my home screen just the bottom dock bar.

    You cannot put widgets in the dock on any stock ROM/Launcher I have seen, and on a stock phone you can't turn off the battery status bar icon.

    Your only option would be to switch to a different launcher, some of them allow widgets in the dock.

    Sorry, probably not what you wanted to hear... :/

    Thank you for the reply. I have tried nova, next and go launcher none of which you can add a widget in the dock bar and actually have it show your percentage of battery life. So is there another launcher that I havent tried that lets you add a battery widget in the dock bar? If so which one?

    Does it have to be in the dock? StatusBar+ will put it in the notification bar, along with allowing you to make other customizations.

    Yes it does. I know there are lots and lots of options to put it in the status bar or homescreen or even a widget clock. But what I would like to know is there a way to have it in the dock bar? Again is there another launcher out there that will let you do this that I havent tried?

    If you can put a widget in the dock using Apex, then I don't know how.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I did find in Apex you are able to add a 1x1 widget in the dock bar using the pro version.( paid version) I havent tried it yet though. I am just going off of what it says.
