    What's a Good Battery Widget?

    I'm on ICS with the .215 update. Not rooted. Don't want to root, although I don't know why. Anyway...

    I'd like to get some app or widget that is compatible with my phone so I can see in more detail what my current battery life is. I'd like to see a percentage number or bigger bar graph or both. I did kind of like the GO system I had before ICS came out, with the exception of the layout when displaying all your apps. I think it cut off a couple or rows, if I remember correctly.

    Suggestions? Please be on .215. I've seen reviews on the Google Play store with some popular battery widgets not compatible with the new update (but did not specify which update that is).

    I use both GSams battery widget and Battery Monitor Widget Pro by 3c. They both have 1% increments that will display in your notification bar and both give lots of excellent information on battery use.

    I use "Gauge Battery Widget" ... looks like a fuel gauge. And it shows in 1% increments as well. Been using it since my old Droid 2

    I use Battery Monitor Widget by FSINIB ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...batterymonitor).

    Oh, thanks alot Matty. Now I have to check that one out! FoxKat has got me being a battery widget junkie, lol! (not because he suggested I should but because I was constantly trying to get his success). I at one time had like 4 of them going at once. I have cut back though... down to two! lol!

    "Battery Left" by Preinvent has been my favorite ever since my D1. And he used to have an account here on the forums and take interactive feedback on his tool, too.

    There is a multitude in Play Store. I went for simplistic and downloaded "Tiny Battery". 1x1, It shows 1% increments, has a few toggles (WiFi, bluetooth, etc...) and battery info available when you tap it.

    FoxKat is such a show-off. We have use widgets that show 1% increments ... he needs one that shows what day his battery is on.

    O.k., I have to admit I was impressed with FoxKat's battery widget display My previous something was not nearly as detailed, & normally simple is best for me; however, I have been trying to figure out why my Maxx (.215) has been not so great with ICS. After 3 FDR since ICS, quirks are slowly improving. I downloaded the aformentioned FSINIB battery monitor to help me, and I am a little worried that it repeatedly gives me a high temp warning. Repeatedly means 5 warnings since I installed yesterday. Should I be worried? I have read posts where people record battery temps of 115-23, and they say there phone is fine. I don't know enough to recognize what is truly alarming. 114 has been my highest since yesterday, but there have been times where my phone felt hotter. My phone feeling hot was never an issue w/ GB. Thanks for any feedback!
