I was reading around on some other forums, and circle battery widget now shows the battery percentage for the droid x in 1% intervals! There is some talk about how this is actually being accomplished, but so far its been pretty accurate for me. :D

Link to where to get this? Market.
Very cool! Now need to get working with roms. Not sure how right it is. System still at 60 and this shows 56. When it was at 62 system was still 60. Ill try it a few days and see what happens.

I installed the oem extended battery and after a night of charging the circle widget shows 99% not 100%. Anyone have the same thing happen?

yep, 1% increments after the latest update. and seems to be accurate. and same here with only charging to 99% even when fully charged. but i dont care. thrilled to have an accurate battery %!

Update: nm, its does charge all the way to 100% in the circle text.

i noticed that the same on the charging, when plugged in, it showed 100, as soon as i unplugged it, it went to 99. i'm trying to determine what effect this will have on the battery as well. seeing the increments go down in 1% values as opposed to 10% is kinda freaky! LOL, i keep thinking my battery is draining super fast! which it still might be.....

Hey guys, do you find that this runs your battery down any faster, being that it is most likely updating the status much more often? I would be very interested to know if it is a battery hog before I give it a try. ?

This link doesn't work and a search of AppBrain (the computer door to Market) doesn't have anything listed for eBattery or eBattery Widget.

Any additional info on this? Thanks in advance!

It's not "ebatterywidget"...it is Circle Battery Widget. (See the thread title above :p).

Just type "circle battery widget" in your market search blank and you will see it as option 1 & 3 depending on if you want to buy the donation version or not.

I was at 100% when I updated the widget this morning. I'm only at 82% now...for light usage.

What percentage does your regular method show you having? Let me guess...80%.

It is probably just an estimation based on the time it has been running, not a true percentage. Honestly, does it really NEED to be 100% accurate? I don't know about you, but I put my phone on the charger every night when I sleep regardless of what any battery indicator shows & I haven't ran out of juice yet.

I don't get why you say it doesn't work, it goes to the correct page for me when I click it, what are you getting when you click it?
