Default Anybody using battery widgets or notifications?

Anybody using them on their phone? If so which one and have you had any issues while running them?

I'm using System Info widget and it works fine. The only widget that's screwy for me is Mobile Signal PRO which shows the phone in a permanent state of 3G which it never did on my G2.

I was using Battery Status Pro (I think that's what it's called). I read a few reviews saying that it was causing instability in phones. I've uninstalled it and so far phone seems more stable.

It probably will reboot now that I've said that but I've used it more heavily than before and it's been holding up.

I have 28 apps and a half-dozen widgets running on my phone and, knock on wood, everybody seems to be behaving. I had to do a hard reset last night after I loaded everything and the phone got stuck on the LG screen with the stupid spinning status bar. After I rebuilt it, it's been running much better than the first time. I'm using Exchange push and a lot of the apps update content and battery life's been just a tad worse than my G2 but nothing shocking.
