    So today I was at jury duty from 7am-3pm, during that time I did do a lot of web surfing. By 2pm, it said I had 40 minutes left on my battery. I use BatteryTime Lite. That is when I realized I needed to stop and conserve energy for a ride home when we would be released at 4:30 pm. The minutes left dropped down to 15 minutes idle at 2:45 and I have been going strong ever since. Made a couple calls and it still has not officially died on me. I guess this app isn't too accurate so I am looking for a replacement, which is the most accurate app for monitoring battery information?

    I use Batterylife by Curvefish very accurate has not failed me. went down to 2% and shortly after my phone died on me. I was trying to run it down to shutting down and BatteryLife didn't let me down,

    thats a good widget, but it doesn't tell you actually how much time left you have on your battery. Just gives the you the percentage its at along with temp.

    This is true, but the addon is still handy because it seems to be very accurate, and after a while you will know your phone well enough to figure out the exact time.

    have you looked at "battery Left" it calibrates based on your usage and tells how how many hours/minutes you have left.

    its a 1x1 widget size instead of the 1x2 I prefer the larger 1x2 widget as I had it centered on my droid the 1x1 leaves an empty space :(

    I am not sure about the accuracy for " battery left " but I have both battery apps running and they are both at 80% and BL is still calibrating. I think it takes a couple days to weeks to get calibrated
