    Is there a widget or app that shows how much battery is left in time form? Like 5hrs left or something?

    How could an app predict how the device will be used? There would be a large difference between heavy browser use, or gps navigation, vs standby for instance.

    how accurate is it? I have used a few of those widgets that were always way off. I did use one that was fairly accurate but it didn't look all that good so i got rid of it.

    ^ so so... pretty accurate until the last 5%. It needs a couple of charges to calibrate but it's not reading it on the fly. So no battery drain. It's writing a history of past use & basing it on that.

    Oooh I will also add that the time it shows is more representative of your average use time not average standby. To me that's a good thing but I could see why people wouldn't like it saying 80% & only 9:39 left when its been in your pocket for 9 hours already. Understand what I'm trying to say?
