    When I upgraded to Mountain Lion it changed the battery status on the top of the screen. It used to tell me how many hours of batter I have and now it doesn't, it gives me a percentage. How do I get it to give me an amount of hours of power?

    This has already been discussed in several threads:
    From the CHECKING STATUS AND HEALTH section of the following link:
    This app can display time remaining on the menu bar: SlimBatteryMonitor

    From the BATTERY LIFE FROM A CHARGE section of the following link:
    The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions. If you haven't already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.

    That feature was removed in Mountain Lion. You can get it back with the free app Battery Time Remaining.
