Display battery percentage level indicator on Android Lollipop (without root)

I am a cyanogenmod fan because i love how customizable it is at every aspect. Well, since i have got a new phone now (moto g3 2015), i have to stay away from cyanogenmod for at least a while for two reasons :
  1. Rooting my phone will void the warranty. 
  2. There is not yet any stable Cyanogenmod ROM available.
Due to this i am struggling with many customization tasks. One of them is the battery level indicator. I want it to display battery level in form of percentage but no option for that has been provided in the stock OS of my Moto G 2015. I reached out for a method to achieve battery percentage indicator (without rooting) and found many which i am gonna share with you :

The best one is Battery Percentage.

  • SMART WATCH integration
  • BATTERY PERCENTAGE
  • Sound and vibration alarm when charger is unplugged. (Anti theft alarm)
  • Full battery alarm
   Pros :
  • Loads of features.
   Cons :
  • Always takes the space of a notification in the drop down space of android 
2. Battery Percentage
   Features :
  • Status bar icon 
   Pros :
  • Simple and small 
   Cons :
  • No additional features 
  • Always takes the space of a notification in the drop down space of android 

2. Batteryminder

    Features :
  •      Customizable status Bar Icon 
  •      Tells the temperature 
  •      Alerts for low battery and fully charged battery 
  •      Widget available 

    Pros :
  • Additional features like alerts for low or full battery 
  • Widget available 

    Cons :
  • Always takes the space of a notification in the drop down space of android. 

3. Battery Widget Reborn (Free)

Features :
  • Highly customizable status icon. 
  • Additional toggles for wifi bluetooth etc. 
  • Motorola 1% hack 
  • Customizable widget option 

Pros :
  • High customizability and many features 

Cons :
  • Always takes the space of a notification in the drop down space of android. 

4. Battery Percent Enabler :

Features :
  • Displays battery percentage within the stock battery icon 
  • Does not require root. 

Pros :
  • Most desirable feature 
  • Does not occupy the notification area 

Cons :
  • Zero customizability 
  • Very small text (hardly readable) 
  • Text does not show when battery is charging 

Battery Percent Enabler could be the best choice only if it could eliminate its cons listed above.
