    Default Battery percentage on the top bar?

    Is there any way to get the battery percentage on that top bar? Thats what I liked about my iTouch is that I could see the percentage right there. The batter indicator seems to be very vague.

    i tried to get this too

    closest solution I could find is to download the HTC battery widget, It displays a percentage but it isn't in the task bar up top.

    My favorite is Circular Battery Indicator by irkan over at XDA ([APP] 27-OCT-2010 Circular battery Indicator with % (No root required) - xda-developers)

    IDK if XDA links are allowed so I apologize ahead of time.

    I want one on the RIGHT side of the phone, so that there is no 'ongoing' in the status bar. The left side should be reserved to things with witch one needs to deal ASAP, the right are just stats, like battery.

    Best way is to install a custom ROM like CyanogenMod. Otherwise, you cannot change the stock battery indicator.

    If you find a way to install CyanogenMod on this phone, I will love you forever.
    We could start a new thread about this.

    For those without rooted phones (like me!), you might find the following alternative satisfactory. I really like it. You just have to "ween" yourself off of the HTC Sense Flip Clock/Weather Widget and replace it with the Market "SiMi Clock/Weather/Battery Widget. Fine program!

    Personally, I find that percentage numbers in the notification area are too small for me to read comfortably. This solution works good for me.

    Screenshot taken with the Market "No-Root Screenshot" app.

    If you're considering a ROM change for your battery display, you might want to try Cleanrom. He has about a half dozen different battery displays as options.

    Battery Monitor Widget.
    I use it to display the percentage, battery temperature, and even the current (drain or charge). On one widget. Plus it keeps a history of the current, voltage, and percentage.
    More information that you can ever use. Very good for identifying high current draw events, or if a charger is working right.

    I used one called BATTERY INDICATOR PRO. See attachment.....that is what is displayed.....This works for rooted (like me) or not being rooted (like I was with the original droid)

    Exclamation Re: Battery percentage on the top bar?

    I think this might be what you need. Battery circle is free on android market. Look at my screenshot. It is in the top left corner.
