    Since I rooted, my battery left and stock battery indicator have not been on the same page. For example, yesterday Battery Left said I had a 38% remaining, and the stock said 70%. I deleted and reinstalled battery left, but noticed today they still don't have their act together. So, which one do I pay more attention to? I would assume the stock one. Also, is battery left the best one for a rooted phone? Thanks!

    For Battery left you have to charge your phone all the way up, and then run it till it dies to get an accurate measurement.

    Are you sure with Battery Left you are using System Battery % and not Estimated Battery %

    There is a big difference and that would explain the readings being so far off

    Bingo. Must have changed when I rooted as well as when I reinstalled. I forgot to reset it to system. Thanks!

    I still use Battery Left--works great--I have an extended battery and the MV readings are a necessity for me

    So it reads the extended battery correctly, without having to reboot?

    No it doesn't read it correctly, it can be calibrated but IMO that is a pain...I just use the Mv readings it provides and it works great after you learn how to read them
