    Default What Is The Best Battery % Indicator On the Market?

    I have been using Battery Indicator by Darshan but for some reason it just doesn't seem to be accurate on the Thunderbolt. Any other good ones out there?

    Battery Status (Ad Free) from Modded Logic has been working well for me.
    There's a free version, but I paid for the version without advertisements.

    It shows the percentage in the top left corner of the status bar, without needing a widget or taking up usable screen space.
    The 15% warning comes on when the status bar indicator app shows 15% and shows 100% when fully charged.
    There are a lot of graphical options and styles to choose from.
    Also has a lot of optional battery status info that can be viewed in the pull down notification system tray like Battery Health, Voltage, Temperature, State of the Battery, Type of Battery installed, and the last time the Battery Charger was plugged/unplugged.

    I use minimalistic text. You can make a battery widget. If you're looking for something slick along those lines, it's pretty good.

    Here's my question..

    How do you put it in the upper right hand corner where the HTC one goes? I can never figure that out, and it only gives me the option to put it on the main screen with all my other icons ..

    The htc widget is great and shows percentage, battery health, temperature, and voltage with a bubble animation when you are charging. Takes up one icon space and is free and has no compatibility issues.

    I like a widget called BatteryLife... you can customize your own colors.

    There are some apps, e.g. Battery Mix, available in the Market that shows battery percentage on the task bar without rooting.

    I use Battery Left Widget. It can be customized to show you System Battery %, Estimated Battery %, Time Dead, Number of Hours/Mins left, and once you calibrate it, it's accurate. I really like it.

    Circle Battery Widgets a top pick and free.

    I use the SystemPanel app. The free version lets you view the battery percentage, but if you buy it, you can actively monitor what all is using your battery and it graphs out your battery life over time. Extremely useful and I highly recommend it. It also offers a lot more info besides battery related stuff.

    Quick battery is great. It launches to battery use or any other activity you choose.

    I use the battery indicator in the simi clock widget. Just another great thing about that widget. It gives you another row for apps on your homescreen than the stock Htc clock...easy weather refresh...launcher for anywhere from 1-20 apps (or even a simi folder which is a whole other topic of discussion) slick look...can backup your config/settings...and

    I am using the Battery Status app from Modded Logic and it works great!

    Now, how do I REMOVE the stock battery icon on the RIGHT side?
