Is there a way to get the exact battery percentage on Froyo? bc I downloaded apps that say they do, but they don't! Any suggestions? :eek: or anyway? Bc I looked for ages, and nothing works!!

Nope. You get it in 10% increments.

Mind if I ask why that would be important?

Bc It was always useful to know the exact percentage, bc there is a difference between 10 % and like 3 % - I mean, if it's able to read that it's at 10, isnt there a way to read in between? Is it a Froyo thing? or a Android thing in general?

I use the Battery Left widget, it will learn your habits and battery and give you an estimate on how much juice is left. After a few days of calibration, it was actually pretty accurate until I got my extended battery... But I can't blame the widget, the OS reads it like a standard battery, so at the end of the work day it'll show only 20-40% left, but if I reboot the phone, it'll show 70-90% left :)
The widget will also show other information as well, such as battery temp and time until the battery runs out.

I understand. I just wait for it to give me the 15% warning and then I either change batteries or put it on a charger. I suppose I could see where someone might want to know right where there at if they were running low.

Depends on what's restricting increments to 10%. If it's the app itself, yes. If the hardware or firmware report in 10% increments then it really doesn't matter what the app does.
