    Go to Market and download Circle Battery Widget. It will give you tons of customization and, best of all, battery levels in 1 PERCENT increments!!!! Only one that does, to my knowledge.

    I don't know for sure but I am willing to bet that 80% means 80-71%.

    My reasoning is this: The battery fully charged at 100% doesnt imediately jump to 90% after a minute of use.

    Hmmm...that is logical...also means my battery is draining faster than I thought.

    So...did the B6X or whatever the # is really fit inside the standard battery cover???

    *giggle*

    Well, that guy still hasn't reported back with any new info. But the BH6X doesn't work with the standard door for me or many other people that have tried it. I have to admit that apparently it does work with some peoples phones but that must be only a small percentage.

    Battery Monitor will also calculate battery percentages in 1% increments based on battery voltage.

    The phone "shows" a 10% drop after it drops past the halfway point. ie: 94% = 90. 84% = 80.

    That's good, from an accuracy standpoint I was hoping that 90% was actually 90% +/-5% which is a correct way of expressing the uncertainty in the measurement. Ironically with a battery measurement, 100% representing 95-105% charge is also probably pretty accurate, but that's a story for another day.

    IMHO the battery meters that go down to +/-0.5% accuracy are just feel-good numbers that really have no basis in reality any more than using 1cm-wide chalk to mark something down to an accuracy of +/-1mm, but if they make people feel good they've done their job

    I am one that the stock door will fit with the extended battery, however having had a Storm 2 with the Seidio extended battery and stock door, I noticed a definite (negative) impact to my touch screen. Therefore even though the stock door does seem to fit just fine, I'm going to stick with the extended door as I don't want to risk any issues with my touchscreen.
