Strange, my iPhone 4 would stay on 100% for like 15-20 minutes of use, I suspect it was a software thing to make it look like it was such a good battery because it always drained faster below 99% than it did going from 100% to 99%.

Stop with the battery anxiety. Charge it when it runs dry.

Problem is, you'll never know. So you're basing your desires off of an incorrect assumption that this number is exact....when its not. This number, into itself, is merely a guess.

I keep mine on. I think not knowing if Im at 70 or 60% would bother me more.

Curious to see what people's opinions are on this (so an update is needed ).

I used to always have mine on, then went months with it off..a few months ago, switched it back on, and today am attempting to have it off again.

Everyone else?

I use Bolt.
It shows only the % and hides the battery.

I also only turn mine on at 20%. I will obsess over it if I leave on all the time!

I keep mine on all the time, but I don't really obsess on how much battery I have left.

I would also obsessively watch the number if I keep it on my status bar. But, I don't like how far buried it is in the settings menu to see it when I want to check. So, I stuck the battery center widget on my notification center drop down (via jailbreak) so I can check with a simple down swipe. Best compromise for me.

I only have it on my iPad mini. Turned off on my 4S. I hated it because I was constantly glancing at it, and without it on, it gives me more peace of mind, even if it's false.

I only turn it on when my battery is low and I'm not near a charger.

Battery % next to battery

Recently turned it off on my 5. I think it's off by default anyway. But I don't need to see every percent that I lose. The phone'll notify me via the 20% popup when I need to charge.
