    Anybody know of any decent battery apps or widgets for Android 5. I've tried the app by kroegerama but it's very small to read and not sure if anybody has tried anything better

    I use Battery Widget Reborn. Lots of settings, gets the job done very nicely.

    Ok does that definitely work on Android 5 lock screen? I'll have to see if I can find some screenies before I buy. All others I've tried work when unlocked but not on the lock screen

    You can try it quickly and ask for a refund if it doesn't work the way you want it to. I believe you've got 15 minutes to decide. Not much time, but should be enough for what you need to make sure, IMO.

    I've been using "battery percent for kitkat/L" since kitkat. Works great, even better on lollipop.

    Same. I've used BWR for a long time and with Lollipop it's still working great. Great app!

    Just installed it, well the free beta version that came out 19th November and although the status bar on unlock is nice, still doesn't provide status bar on lock, just the bar notification

    I use power toggles. You can see here by my screenshot that it shows the battery percentage on the lock screen.

    It does. There's a free version, too: my bad for not linking to it. You can see from the screenshots that the battery percentage is on the lock screen and that it can be expanded to show you whatever information you set up to see. I'm not sure if you can do both things with the free version, but you definitely can with the pro.

    Yep sorry I did see it with the notification but was hoping to get it in the status bar like I had before. Just updating the wife's and she's saying the same "oh I don't like that, I want what I had before". Guess we just being fussy lol. I have however just re-enabled my Settings Extended to show battery indicator and guess I'll have to deal with that for now
