This is the original App from xda-developers. Don't accept fakes!
You can get support here:

Just install this App and click on "Enable Battery Percent". Then reboot. You can uninstall the App afterwards. The setting will remain.

No root needed!

You can only see the battery percent text, if the battery is empty enough. (White text on white battery!)

Do I need a rooted device?
No, should work on any 4.4+ device :)

Can you change the text-color?
Sorry, this is impossible with a simple app like this one, because the color is hard-coded in SystemUI.apk. You need to decompile that apk, edit one line of source code and then recompile it. Actually, I don't plan to do this, because I don't like to change system-apps. Also, the OTA-Updates from google would fail after that and it would require root.

After removing the app the percentage is still there.
That's because the app changes a system setting. The app does NOT display the battery itself!

I uninstalled the App. Now I want to disable the percent display.
OK, just install the App again, uncheck the setting and uninstall it.

    This is good because my nexus 6 does not include this. But the letter is soooo tiny almost impossible to read.

    This feature was something I loved about Cyanogenmod and I'm glad that the app exposes in native Android without rooting.

    How wonderful that a simple app, to change a setting, has no ads, and can be uninstalled when you are done. Top notch! Thanks!

    I just turned on the percentage and rebooted my Nexus 6 without even rooting. Works flawlessly

    [Update] The developer responded promptly pointinf Initially, I liked it. But then it grew on me how hard it is to read the value. I uninstalled it because I thought having it too small to read in a glance was equivalent to not having it but guess what, uninstallation does not revert the change. WTH
