    Is there a ROM or a Kernel that will display proper battery levels when used with a Droid 2 extended battery or a Seido battery in a Droid?

    I believe the droid 2's extended battery is reporting correctly unlike the sedio that will quickly drain to 5% then stay at 5% for the remainder of the battery's life.

    You need a 3rd party app to get a accurate reading of the sedio's battery life as well as following a charge / discharge schedule (ie no random charging allowed).

    I do not own a extended battery for my droid 1, was merely sharing what I know of the 2 choices we have.

    I am talking about the 3rd party seido 2800(ish)mAh battery that was also asked about in this thread by the op, this battery does not correctly report how much capacity it has left.

    The motorola produced extended battery reports is capacity remaining just fine.

    I have been running the D2 extended battery in my D1 and I successfully get 20-30hrs of battery life. The D1 reads the battery capacity well. I have had the Seidio 2600mah battery prior and the D1 never read the battery life correctly. I think it is something with the Droid phones. I do not think and rom or kernel will give you a correct reading. This probably why Seidio never created a slim extended battery for the Moto Droid phone.

    With the D2 extended battery you will be able to get a full days use out of your phone. Unless you run GPS all day and stream music at the same time.

    Battery Left is your best bet. 3500-4200 mah is approximately 0-100%.
