    I noticed with Mountain Lion only the percentage value is indicated on the menu bar for the battery. In Lion you could have either the percentage or the time remaining for the battery displayed on the menu bar.

    I'm just wondering if there is any way to get the time remaining value back on the menu bar instead of the percentage. I know you can click on the battery icon for it and have it pop up via the drop down menu but I'd prefer it the other way...

    This is already being discussed in several threads:
    From the CHECKING STATUS AND HEALTH section of the following link:
    From the BATTERY LIFE FROM A CHARGE section of the following link:
    This should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions:
