    Are you looking for it to specifically be in the notification bar? I use Battery Widget to display on my desktop and that's pretty sweet. But, now that you mention it, it would be sweet for it to be in the notification area and not taking up real estate on the desktop.

    I found this one with a quick Google:


    Try it out. And, then try out a couple more. Come back and post which you like best!! I'm sure others could benefit from it too. I know I'd like to know which ones are good and which to avoid.

    I've been using Battery Monitor Widget Pro for about a year on my DX2. Absolutely love it. I use the BMW Transparent icon package to get the bright green battery percentage. Screenshot I took today of an app issue.

    Weird the email I got in subscription says you said something else, and yet, it doesn't say you edited your post.

    Does battery circle show in the notification area? I'll give it a shot tomorrow and see what it's like. I think I'd prefer it in the notification area over the desktop. But, maybe not. I don't use that much desktop space because all of my stuff is in folders. But, I guess I could put more widgets then.

    Didn't get a chance to do this until now. You are right, Battery Circle is better. Finally got a chance to check both out. Battery Status has a lot of options, but, none of the display in the notification area options worked. And, it showed up on my battery usage statistics as using 3% while battery circle did not. I'll go with that one. Now I can get rid of my widget!! I just wish I could have this replace the battery icon on the right hand side of the notification area, so it wasn't up there twice.

    Have you done all the usual stuff? Like, have you lowered your brightness (or set it on automatic), turned off WiFi/GPS when not in use, increased the amount of time between syncing for certain apps, etc.

    Also, if you go into your settings and then Batter & Data Manager, then select Battery Mode, there should be some options in there to get better battery life. Make sure you aren't on Performance Mode too.

    Also, have you looked to see if any apps are showing up in your battery usage? You might have a program that is soaking up too much battery life.

    Or, you battery could just be really old or used a lot and you might need a new one, depending on how old your phone is.
