Show battery time

Hi,

somebody has posted here an add-on that gives you the ability to show battery time instead of percentage in ML (like it was in Lion). Can you please provide the link for that? I lost it.

Thanks.

This is already being discussed in several threads:
RMBP Battery %?
Battery Status
Battery - Show Time no longer available
From the CHECKING STATUS AND HEALTH section of the following link:
Quote:
On the MBPR and on ML, the Menu Bar battery indicator no longer offers "Time Remaining" as an option on the Menu Bar. It still appears in the dropdown menu.
You can use this app to get the same functionality: SlimBatteryMonitor

From the BATTERY LIFE FROM A CHARGE section of the following link:
Quote:
  • Your "time remaining" indication is an ever-changing estimate, based on the current workload of your system. It will fluctuate up and down from minute to minute as your power demands change. It is not perfectly accurate, but only an estimate.
This should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions:
