    I hate how the battery meter is in increments of 10. Is there any widget that shows the actual amount of battery you have left?

    Circle Battery Widget definitely does.

    I'm sure there are others as well.

    +1 on Circle Battery Widget. Shows battery in 1% intervals and very customizable to match your wallpaper etc.

    Definitely - Circle Battery is fantastic! And once they add a notification icon it will be perfect.

    "Battery left" is a good one too. Been using it since OG Droid

    Don't widgets burn battery? So by having a widget that reads battery life you are draining it at the same time?

    Unless you're running a ton of widgets that are all automatically refreshing every few seconds, you're not really going to notice that much of an additional battery drain from a well-designed widget. Circle Battery Widget is well-designed.

    I've been running Circle Battery for about four months now and its use of battery is so small that is doesn't even register as an app using resources.

    Awesome! What about things like Beautiful Widgets. Do those burn lots of battery? I like having a bigger clock on the homescreen and the one by BW would be perfect but if it wastes battery.....

    If you're just using the clock it probably is not a battery drainer. However, if your using the weather widgets (which are nice) and they are updating every 10 minutes or so, then that is a different story.
