    I recently installed Battery Widget and love the battery percentage icon it places in the top bar. The only problem is that I have another app that has already put one there and I want to get rid of it. Anyone know what app has placed the left-most battery icon there or know an easy way to figure this out? Thanks.

    Could be related to your clock widget or your toggle widget (assuming they're different).

    Is it related to a setting on your phone?

    My S3 has a check box in settings, to show battery percentage.

    Thank you both for the input. It isn't related to the widgets for sure, because I can turn that one odd and add a third battery percentage to the status bar

    It isn't part of the battery settings on my HTC One that I can tell.

    I don't think it's part of Nova launcher as I can't find a setting for it. Any other ideas?

    It's not in the battery settings on my S3,its in Display settings.

    Of course we're talking about 2 different manufacturer's.

    Well, it was worth mentioning.
    Sorry it didn't help.

    I appreciate it. The other thing I want to try is disabling a few apps without removing them from my device. Is this what is called "freezing" an app in the Android world? If not, how would I go about disabling an app without removing it or resetting all the settings?

    Yes, system apps can be disabled in settings.
    3rd party apps require a standalone app like Titanium Backup.
    I've never used Titanium, but it gets rave reviews in the forums I read.

    I've frozen everything I can think of and still nothing takes it away. Truly frustrating. Thanks for the assistance.

    If you pull down the status bar is there an ongoing notification for that icon? If so then you can press and hold on it, then hit "app info" and freeze it from there

    Makes sense--Widgetsoid is similar to Power Toggles, which also gives the option to have a battery meter in the notification bar. Thanks for following up--I wish more people would do so, because it's very helpful for other people who may have the same question. And it also helps us, the Ambassadors, because the we can file this away in our memory banks and look like geniuses when someone else has a similar question!

    Yeah no problem, I hate it when I land on a thread that asks the same question I'm going to and no one ever posted the solution.

    I ended up looking up some suspect apps on the google play store and looking at screen shots to identify which app was adding the offending icon. Thanks again for everyone's help.
