Gauge Battery Widget is a widget that shows your battery usage as a speedometer

p]If you’re fed up of dull battery widget, check this one out. Gauge Battery Widget constains 3 different sizes widgets (1x1,2x1,2x2), all of them looks like a speedometer. Choose the size that fits with you and start to show it off. What’s more, you can set the color, the type and the status bar icon.

Apart from a good-looking layout, Gauge Battery Widget is quite accurate. It seems that there are some calibration problems with some devices with Gingerbread 2.3. However, we’ve tried it on a SGS with 2.3.3 and we didn’t notice a problem.

What’s more, you can set your Wireless & Networks settings, as well as your Location & Security settings from the app. This way you can manage your battery consumption from the widget. The temperature, the voltage and the percentage can be shown on the status bar.
Gauge Battery Widget has been developed by Tomas Hubalek, a single developer who has launched half dozen of apps (widgets and games basically) with remarkably success.
High recommendable.

    Widget works great, but takes too much space as it cannot be moved to SD-card. Had to uninstall. (i) Tested with Sony Xperia MK16i

    This app/widget is a viable component of the home screen providing a quick status for those of us that should be wearing our glasses. :D. I appreciate the full customization ability but frankly the preconfigured selections are more than adequate.
