Battery Widget is not an app; it’s a simple desktop tool for monitoring you battery-life
As easy as it sounds, this is not an app but a 1x1 widget to put on your screen and see at a glance how much juice your battery has left. What's more- and this is really interesting- if you tap on the widget, it will show a battery with 5 buttons:
"Battery" Button : This opens the Battery Monitor screen where you can see how much battery each Android system feature drains (screen, wifi, apps, etc.)
"Display" Button : This opens the Display settings where you can set the font style, brightness, saturation, etc.
"GPS" Button : This opens the Location and Security settings
"Wi-Fi" Button : This enables/disables Wi-Fi.
"BTButton ": This opens Wireless and Network settings
These extra features allow us to carry out a comprehensive control of our battery life, by configuring the main processes that make the battery run out fastest.
Battery Widget has been developed by Gekyouup (mippin.com), an app developer focused on widget performance. They've launched lots of similar apps for a wide variety of issues.
Battery Widget is a truly recommendable way to monitor your battery life, not just to see how much is left. Thanks to the shortcuts to the main settings options, we can increase battery life in just a few taps of the screen.
Updated with new settings design, also added Network settings and 'Show Desktop' feature - shows your wallpaper/live-wallpaper in full screen.
Note: This doesn't open, it is a Widget not an app. Add on homescreen with Menu -> Add -> Widgets -> Battery Widget or Apps -> Widgets -> Battery Widget
Description Permissions Usage by @BruceProgrammer (thx):
For quick access to the controls for turning Wi-Fi on and off, this application requires device permissions to view Wi-Fi state, change Wi-Fi state, and "prevent device from sleeping". This application does not, however, do anything to prevent the device from sleeping.
In order to display whether the GPS receiver is on or off, for display purposes only, this application requires the additional device permission to access "fine (GPS) location". This application, however, does not actually ever access device location information.

I like this
I've used this for years to see my battery level. Having a Samsung Exhibit that doesn't have support for showing battery percent in notification area, this widget works great. I also often use the shortcuts to display or battery or networks, etc.
Widget Battery with smallest size ...
Excellent is deserved
Quickly look at what's using your battery. Turn off and on wifi and Bluetooth. Works great!
