I was just wondering if there is an app that i can view battery stats. Like the life of it and stuff. And the Mah and stuff. Kinda like Dr Battery for Palm users.

this comes stock on android. i have a widget called extended controls with a battery icon that shows the first one when you tap on it.

I'm guessing since you have ROM Manager you have flashed ClockworkMod recovery?
If so:
1. boot into recovery
2. click on advanced
3. wipe battery stats

What exactly does wiping battery stats do? I did it for the first time on sat, and now my phone seems to be dying a lot faster or just showing the wrong percentage.

Wiping the batter stats basically makes your phone forget how your battery works. If you do it correctly, your phone will learn how much juice your battery has to use and be able to gauge more accurately how much is left.

Charge fully -> leave it on the charger -> reboot into recovery and wipe battery stats -> reboot your phone -> leave it on the charger for a minute to make sure it has a full charge -> drain completely until it shuts off without charging it at all

Nice to see you over here. :)

I tried that app, and to no avail. I bought a new battery, so i think it's showing the right percentage.
