However, you still need to click the icon to see the percentage of remaining battery life, which is fine, but you could get a much improve visualization using BatterBar. BatteryBar is a tiny third-party battery meter application that accurately calculates the battery life of your device, and it displays the exact percentage remaining with a much better icon in the Taskbar. You can even click the icon, to see the time remaining running on battery. When you hover over the icon, the app can also show additional information, such as battery capacity, time remaining until fully charged, battery wear, and much more.

How to install BatteryBar

Once you completed the steps, you’ll notice a new bigger battery icon in the Taskbar, which should be green, but it’ll change colors as battery life gets shorter. BatteryBar doesn’t offer any options to customize the icon, but it’s default appearance and functionality are better than Windows 10’s default battery icon, and it blends perfectly in the Taskbar.
