    Is there an app for the iPhone that will tell you the exact strength of the battery? I know it gives me a warning at 20% and 10% capacity, but I'm wondering how you can tell the exact percentage of capacity at any given time.

    I'm sure someone will tell me to do a search and that this issue has been covered here before... I have done that and don't ahve the patience to wade through 1000 posts that contain the words "app" "battery" or other words I used.

    Thanks for helping another newbie with what is most likely a simple question.

    I know there is one available for a Jailbroken iPhone. I've tried it and it works well. Instead of the battery symbol in the upper left corner it shows a percentage.

    iPhone 3G

    I have an iPhone 3G and don't have plans to do the jailbreak thing. Thanks for that suggestion, though. It might be useful for someone with a jailbroken phone.

    Download Bossprefs.

    Enable numeric battery.

    Now you have a battery icon that can be switched back and forth from the standard icon, to a percentage, simply by tapping on it.

    You're right. I don't know how I didn't see it the first time, but I missed that part.

    Sorry. I guess I forgot that I wasn't posting in the "iPhone Hacks" forum.
