    I have seen several screen shots of something that shows percentage of battery remaining over the top of the actual battery icon.

    What is this app called? I have tried several apps that I thought might do this, but I cannot find the one I want.

    Yeah, I am not sure if it is an app or something that you have to be rooted for

    I guess I am crazy. I just went through 50 pages of a screen shot thread on here and never saw it the first time

    I think you're talking about "Battery Left."

    The application is called "Battery Indicator". It is available in the market.

    It shows the percentage in 10% increments.

    With all due respect, that's absolutely not true!

    FootballRef...

    My Droid is not rooted either, and I use a free app called Battery Indicator which shows a battery outline with remaining charge percentage on it in my notifications bar.

    Here is the link to the app >>> Battery Indicator - Android app on AppBrain

    One GREAT feature it also provides is a display of the BATTERY TEMPERATURE in FAHRENHEIT when you pull down on the notifications bar. Actually, the temp reading is the reason I installed this app on my Droid!

    Battery Left is a widget...very nice, but not what I am after

    Battery Indicator is kinda what I am after. I would like for the battery indicator icon be where the current battery icon is located. I will use this one for now.

    I should have pointed out what I wanted when I saw it originally. Sorry for not getting a picture to show you all.

    Thanks for the help all!

    I think the OP is talking about the normal battery icon in the notification bar having the percentage showing (top right). Your app makes two icons, one with the percentage and the normal one the droid shows. If you are rooted, some ROMs have customized the framework of the droid system to provide the percentage natively in the top right. You have to be rooted to get that effect and not have two batteries in the notification panel.

    You also might want to check out an app called "Battery Level" that puts a numeric value in the notification bar

    called 'battery widget'

    It's only a widget but it works great! Is free and is by 'geekyouup'. Iv'e been using it since almost day one and love it. Oh and you do NOT have to be rooted. I'm not rooted and never been. Just go to the android apps and type in 'battery widget'.
