Why do people use battery widgets? Since the phone has the battery indicater in the status at the top. Just curious why people use them.

because for some it's a deadly obsession. they like to track each %.

i deleted all battery % widgets long ago and i suggest that everyone do the same. the battery % is not accurate and it's silly to sit and watch every % and extrapolate when the battery % consumption is not linear and constantly worry about the battery. my advice is to just look at the default battery bar and stop stressing about the battery. just relax and enjoy and use the phone and stop obsessing about every misreported incorrect battery %. you will have a little less stress in your life.

Lol. Plus the widget would be using juice as well, right? It's fine with me if people feel they need the widget. Just don't see it being necessary. Even HTC provides one for us. I guess it's about the choice. Lol

I actually enjoy using Battery indicator quite a bit. It gives me, at a glance a number as opposed to a visual icon in the status bar. It just makes it easier for me to estimate my battery time left. Just because I have a number does not mean I sit there and obsess over it. For me it is all about ease ability. In addition it provides other nice features I actually enjoy using like the information in the notification bar, color thresholds and so forth.
