    Default Battery notification bar indicator app - recommendations needed!

    Hello all, as a long time user of BatteryEx free, with the demise of mobihand I'm struggling to find an alternative and would appreciate recommendations. I'd willingly pay for a good app (and would get BatteryEx paid if there didn't seem to be so many unanswered licence key issues). To sum up - I'm looking for an app which shows the remaining battery percentage in the status/notification bar (not in the menu or app icon). Another must is the app not draining battery itself!

    Many thanks all

    For info in case anyone searches for the same thing in future - I went with 'Battery Notification' by Raypho (I wanted a standalone app which just displayed battery). So far it seems okay, pretty accurate. No charging indicator when charging which is taking a bit of getting used to. Overall it's good, and I'd recommend it to someone looking for a simple battery percentage indicator app (but I'd rather have BatteryEx given the choice).

    I'm using meterberry. It can put a small icon in the notification bar for remaining memory or battery or battery temp.

    I agree with the Adv_OS and LED app from AppWorld. It does a multitude of different tasks including a very accurate battery monitor. It also has led lights that you can set for contacts, programs, etc, flashlight, popups, screenshots, time/date, wallpapers, temperature, contact manager, etc. It is probably the best app on AppWorld and there are tons of threads on here attesting to it. It's free but they also have a paid app. The free one is all you need.

    For info in case anyone looks for an alternative for BatterEx free in the future - after a little while with Battery Notification I didn't particularly like it (and had some battery level problems which I think were probably just coincidental), tried QuiteSimple by SmartBIndie which I prefered, but eventually just decideded to purchase BatteryEx paid (which is great) and am hoping that I don't have any registration problems down the line.

    So, my conclusion is that (in my opinion) the best replacement for BatteryEx, is BatteryEx.
