    This trick does work pretty well, however I use the app battery doctor instead - It is much easier to read and is colour coded.

    I use Power Toggles. Very nice control over all power options.
    Shows as percent in alert bar & pull down.

    It's better than nothing but you can't really see the reading until you're down below 45% or so. I'd like to find a better alternative as well. Don't like using the Battery Doctor one because it just doesn't look clean.

    System settings > Battery is all I need . Otherwise, two finger slide down from top as mentioned above to have the tiles show in the notification area.

    I have used this app with all my devices. Even tho it has not been updated since 2010 it still works fine. I like to save apks to my own server since some updates from the play store have broken perfectly good apps in the passed. Its just a widget to show basic system parameters and acts as a shortcut to the related settings section.

    Play store doesn't list it as compatible with much since it hasn't been updated so I attached the apk. Just use a file manager like X-plore to install.

    What do you mean by 'not clean'?

    Sure it does. Pull down from the top of the screen with one finger and tap the icon at top right of screen, or pull down with two fingers simultaneously. Either way, you should see:

    I use a simple Zooper Widget with the battery percentage on my home screen. It's small, out of the way and super customizable. It's a great app for customizing since it gives you total control of size, text, placement, color etc.

    I mean it looks tacky and doesn't mesh well with the black and white system icons that rest at the top of the screen.

    Trying to do something similar but don't want a widget on my home screen or anything added to the pull down menus. I noticed a pic from one of the apps above had a percent number with a ring around it in place of the stock battery status icon:

    I like the looks of this. I don't know if this is just the stock battery status icon from a different phone/mfg or if this is just an app or theme but can this same thing be done on a Nexus 5?

    I am not 100% sure but I believe you need root access to do that. Otherwise, you just have to put up with the battery icon on the right and the percentage on the left.
