    I had been using "Battery Status - free" as my battery widget for a while because it looks really really sharp. I love the look of it, but it was really quite a battery drain. It ranged from 2-6% of my battery usage, which was usually more than any other single app. Seems a bit excessive for something that's helping me monitor my battery...

    There's so many battery widgets and notifiers out there that I just wanted some opinions on what ones out there work well, don't drain the battery, look nice, function well, etc. I appreciate any input

    I love BattStat.

    The simplistic look is great.

    The one that's native to the upper right corner of the screen doesn't drain my battery.

    SysTrey Monitor tracks battery percentage, if you want it to. I typically just use it to monitor my available RAM, but I don't mind pulling down the windowshade to see how much battery power I have left.

    I've had good luck with this one as well.

    I am REALLY happy with "Quick Battery", especially when paired with "Quick Settings"

    Gauge Battery Widget - Search for it in the market. It looks really cool (like a car speedometer) and I have had ZERO troubles with it. It also has an option to show a small gauge up in your notifications bar. Great app with lots of customization options.

    Thanks for all the suggestions! I looked at all of them and decided to give quick battery a try (mainly because it specifically says that it doesn't cause battery drain, heh) I'll use it for a bit and see how it works out.

    I appreciate the help!
