Checking battery status using ADC

When powered by a battery, would it be possible to check the battery power level by reading the voltage through the ADC pin?

I read elsewhere in the forums (see the “help on connecting” thread) that unfortunately the ADC pin supposedly only tolerates 3.3V. My battery is 3.7V so I guess some sort of voltage divider would be required. Any suggestions on what kind would make most sense? Other issues?

I use the ADC precisely for that, and I just use a simple voltage divider made of two equal resistors (47kΩ, I think), which halves the voltage. This way I have a bit of a margin there (I don’t need my measurements to be very precise).
