    I'm trying out an app called Battery Snap. I've been using BatteryLeft for a few weeks and while I like it, I haven't gotten an accurate Time Remaining since I got the extended battery. I recalibrated and right after a full 14 hours charging (3rd full charge on the battery) it says I have 10 hours left with 4182mV. That's the longest time remaining so far. It does run longer than that, but even with an "Accurate" reading it doesn't show much.

    Battery Snap is a free app with some nice features. You have a choice of widgets, for example. It has a graph. It said I have 1 day and 9 hours when BatteryLeft said 10 hours.

    I can't really say "Get rid of BatteryLeft" because it has some nice features. For one thing, I can choose what is displayed on the widget and the voltage is in mV, not volts.

    Has anyone else used Battery Snap? You can see it at Battery snap v2.6.0 Application for Android | Tools

    I might have to try this too, I use Battery left for my 2800mAh and gave up on an accurate reading and strictly go by MV, I dont even have the Accuracy show up on the widget because it is so misleading, and I pushed battery left app into the system and themed the widget, which I would have to do here too

    Dang, I cannot download batterysnap. It states that it's no longer in the Market Place. I went to the link above that the OP linked....tried the barcode. It would still take me to the Market Place...yet I still cannot locate it.

    :(

    Well I just downloaded the BatterySnap from the market no problem, looks like there is no need to theme it though as it has a fully transparent background option. That is what I did with battery left, removed the battery.png so all that shows is the percentages/mv/temp or whatever, just text no background. Everything on my Droid is themed transparent, Astrid, Calendar, all stock widgets, Pandora, SetCpu, AudioManager, etc. I run Live Wallpapers and like to see as much background as possible without sacrificing any of my Widgets
