Gauge Battery Widget is a widget that shows your battery usage as a speedometer
This is the paid version of Gauge Battery Widget. It contains more sizes for the widgets, circle battery icon for the status bar, different type widgets and other extra features.
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.

Right after the Verizon update for the droid turbo yesterday this widget stopped working correctly. This app needs and update to be compatible with the droid turbo now.
Used on s2 s3 z1 and now s5 works well
I first installed it on my Atrix 4G, then my Samsung Galaxy S3, and now on my Samsung Note 4.
Easy to install & configure, plus 'lightweight' in terms of resources. Provides a simple widget and status bar reading of remaining battery life, and detailed useage stats in the main app. The temperature readout is also useful. One of my 'essential' apps.
