    I have an idea for a tweak that Chevyno1 could use in his next ROM. The idea is an alternate battery indicator. Having a thin bar at the top of the notification bar that shows visually how much battery you have. Remember this is just an idea, not sure if this is an actual possibility or not. Chevyno1 please read this!

    I've seen the thin bar (above the status bar, correct?) on other ROM screen shots, can remember which ROM it was though... im thinking Miui, but am prolly wrong there.... I would personally love this mod!

    I would love to see this in SS, I have used Miui but I guess I never really noticed it, but like I said, I would love to see it in SS.

    Hm. I actually don't like the look of that. I don't see the point when it doesn't display an actual percentage and I have plenty of real estate in the bar for the traditional battery icon.

    I am ESPECIALLY against this if, rather than borrowing space from the notification bar, it sits atop the notification bar and steals [even a few pixels of] valuable screen real estate, as it appears it might be doing.

    Chevy - if you do this and it decreases the amount of space below the bar, please make it optional! :hail:

    im not a fan of it, not that it takes up space on the screen or anything but that i just like to look up and see the battery percentage, as simple as that. its a nice tweak though

    I love the battery percentage. I would love to have the % option on every battery indicator. Chevy, I like what you have now but the more options and tweaks the better. Best ROM out there IMHO. Thanks for all of your hard work.
