    Since I'm using a battery app that puts a icon the task bar I would like to remove the system one.

    I read somewhere that you have to root.

    Wow really? That's pretty extreme just to remove that.

    I just use launcher pro and remove the hole damn bar. And of course you don't have to be rooted, just incase you didn't know...

    I like the notification bar hidden as well - but if the OP is wanting to still view the app icon he has added, it is counterproductive :) LOL...

    @ OP - have you thought about a battery widget for one of your homescreens?

    I use gauge battery widget. It looks like a gas gauge. I think its the best looking.

    You have to donate to the dev for this...but it is in the widget settings (there are preset schemes to choose from but if donate via paypal, you get a unlock code). This code allows you to customize colors...

    Here is a screenshot of mine with shades of blue...

    Yeah I'm using the same battery widget and why I started this thread. That widget gives you a nice icon up top and puts the percent left inside of it which is cool. This really should not be so hard to do? I like the notification bar for everything else it does and don't want to loose it.
