    For those that may be interested, the circle battery widget will display 1% battery increments on your Droid 2, D2G, and Droid X now =) My reason for posting this in the ROM section (aside from letting ROM users who would like to have 1% increments know) was simply to let any dev's know who might not have been aware. Possibly there is a way to incorporate the hack into a new ROM?

    Definitely not bogus, sir ;)
    All you have to do is download and install it, nothing to it other than that.

    Oh, I misunderstood. It's the circle battery widget, not just the icon..

    No it doesn't drain the battery any more than any similar app.

    No problem. I've been using this widget for months and I love it. Super bonus now that it reads in one percent increments like my girlfriends Continuum. Neither one of us suffer any ill battery life issues with the widget. G ood luck!

    But isn't it actually just an algorithm that uses the battery stats to estimate exact battery percentage? I thought the drivers on Motorola phones only report 10% increments.

    What calculates battery percentage is simple math, yes, your right. But drivers are not needed. Only thing you need is battery voltage. If you know at x voltage, the battery is at a specific percentage. Its a little more complex than that, but not much.
    I do a lot of battery research at work, and all the lithium chargers calculate percentage in 1% increments by just reading battery voltage. Why do motorolas phones go in 10% increments? Prolly because they feel 1% is not really accurate enough, and I don't think it is either. But its cool!!

    Also I forgot to mention, and this is all pure speculation, so I may be wrong, but the reason ROM devs use 10% incs is probably because they are pulling that variable from the kernel as DID battery circle widget (they once also reported in 10% incs before the last update). But then its possible- on the last update, they produced their own algorithm, and the variable is coming from their own software. Just my two cents.
