I'm using Battery Level now, it seems to be working ok on my phone, live tile, integrated with the lock screen, etc.

With minimal use today, work email, bit of surfing / app searching, few texts, I'm at 94% after 4 hours off charger. Before I took Drive off background apps, I would be at about 60% after 4 hours and charging before the end of the work day... I'm also better about closing out of apps when I'm done with them (keeps a rogue from sucking up my battery).
I think that it is little stuff like that that you learn about when becoming accustomed to a new phone. Seems like every phone that I've had went through a period of questionable performance when I first got it.
