I'm running the Nightly on my NC.  Is there a way to get a version with the Battery Percentage on the Status Bar instead of just the Battery Icon.

I've tried some of the Battery Apps, but I they don't seem to be accurate at all.  Plus they only appear on the Notification Bar or as a Widget, I actually would like it on the Status bar.

Thanks

Go to Settings>CyanogenMod settings>Interface>Status bar tweaks>Battery percentage.   Check the box to show battery percentage.  Yes, it's buried pretty deep in the settings. I got lucky and stumbled onto it one day.

Be advised that, at least on other devices running CM7 (and any other ROM for that matter), my battery status gauge is horribly wrong until I've done at least one full charge-discharge cycle after clearing battery stats at 100% charge. After being sorely disappointed with battery life after updating, I did a run-until-dead test. When I was able to stream Pandora for nearly two hours at a 1% reading, I had to acknowledge it was the blasted gauge and not the device or ROM that was at fault.

After doing this, it dies promptly after getting below 5% like it should.  Not sure I'm happy about that, but it's predictable.

found it... Thanks.  hopefully it's a bit more accurate than the Battery Apps I've tried.
