    Little thing - I can't see any way to get the battery time appearing next to my battery like I used to in Lion, anyone got any ideas? I can only get the percentage on the menu bar, with time in the drop down.


    Thoughts?

    They got rid of it.

    I use iStat Menus anyway, and I'm sure there's a free app that'll do the same.

    It's really annoying that Apple removed this option.

    Shame on you, Apple.

    How is iStat Menus running in ML? I think the battery estimate was a tad off for me when I got my new MacBook Air 2012.

    I dont understand why they would even think 'This feature has to be removed!'

    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:

    Yeah, it sucks. There's no reason they had to remove it. :(
