    I always have mine showing, but i've noticed there are a lot of people that don't.
    I am just wondering doesn't it drive you crazy not knowing the percentage of your battery?

    I only have the % showing and hide the actual battery.

    I do. Otherwise it's too hard to get a accurate reading.

    How do you go about doing this? Or I guess what's the jailbreak tweak called?

    there are many tweaks that will let you do this. one of my favorites is called Bolt. it hides the battery icon but when your charging the device a little lightening bolt will be displayed in its place

    I have mine showing! That's the one thing I really disliked about Android, you can't do it unless your root and in most cases you need a custom ROM.

    I'm always checking to see what % im at before I go out.

    This. I don't want to think I have half a battery left by the icon but in reality I've got < 20% remaining. I have mine turned on so I know how much I have and if I need to conserve power if I'll be away from my charger for a while.

    Yes, the one I use is a jailbroken tweak called "hide battery on status bar".

    I also have mine turned on, and for the same reasons as the other members have posted here - accuracy

    We have it set to show on both phones.
    Easier to see where you are truly at, battery wise.

    I don't. Makes me think I'm using to much battery.

    I have always had the % displaying on all of my previous non Apple devices.
    The battery icon alone really says nothing to me.

    Good Luck

    I always have. It lets me take care of the battery. I don't charge it if is over 60 %, unless i know I'm going to be away from a power outlet for a extended period.

    Side note: Anyone use the jailbreak app battery detective? Pretty interesting. I have it installed on both my 4 and 4s, let's u know how many charge cycles the battery has had (450 for my 4 34 for my 4s, it's max capacity vs current capacity). Pretty cool. Although maybe I obsess to much.....

    Hey Blink, thanks for the Bolt tip. Got it, works as advertised and frees up status bar space, nice.

    Considering how little space it takes up in the status bar, it almost doesn't make sense not to have it displayed. As others have said, I like knowing exactly how much juice I have left and not having to rely on an inaccurate battery icon.

    I do and like knowing how much juice I have left incase I need to put it into Airplane mode for some reason.

    I agree with the previous poster about the battery icon being inaccurate (hard to read). I prefer the percentage to even the multi-bar battery icon.
