    Notice alot of members here download apps for battery status and signal strength for their Droids. Just an FYI..the Droid comes with these two features already on the phone....

    *Press menu from the home screen
    *Press settings
    *Scroll down to 'about phone' and press
    *Press status

    Battery level % status and dBm signal strength are on that page along with some other phone vitals

    Yeah, too bad they aren't widgets that come with the phone... I think that is what people complain about.

    Only thing that bugs me about the stock battery indicator is that it only shows in 10% intervals.

    On my 3GS, the % indicator when compared to the usage statistic was a good way for me to judge if my battery was draining too quickly.

    True, but it's nice to know you have access to battery % without an app. As of now a good number of apps do weird things to these phones

    This.

    Also, you can long-press a homescreen to add a shortcut directly to "Battery Use". Not a widget, but only one-click.
