    Is there any way I could place a widget or an icon on a home screen as a short cut for the Battery Manager (that I access by pressing Settings, then Battery Manager) so I can see the percentage of juice left? I do have the Battery icon at the top right of the screen but it does not let me know the percentage of juice left at a glance. Thanks!

    Thanks to both of you

    Just to clarify, I could not find the Battery widget on the Android Widget list until I download it from the Market, then it appears on the list (guess it's not stock) I tried the Battery Left widget and the Circle Battery widget and prefer the latter, so I uninstalled the Battery Left widget. Thanks! Sissi.

    Battery solo widget and battery life widget work good. Both are in the market and are free.

    There are TONS of battery widgets in the market.
    battery status
    Battery status text
    BattStatt
    circle battery widget
    clarus battery
    minimalistic text widget has a battery setting
    and system info widget
    those all have battery percentage widgets with different styles to choose from. check them out and use the one you like the most.

    i use extended controls. it has a power widget that you can add any amount and your choice of toggle switches on the phone, and also shows the battery percent on a toggle that launches battery use
