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.

    .. on an LG G2, although happy to blame LG rather than the developer - can't expect it to work on all Android devices, more's the pity. Great idea though.

    Great indicator and fits kitkat ui but its too small and hard to recognize the number

    Exactly what I was looking for! Something that looks clean, tells me my battery percentage when I need it, while not taking up extra space in my notification bar! This is absolutely great :)

    Should change the text text to black so that we can see even is 100%
