I would like make a recommendation to all laptop owners. The icon battery status that is used on the mac os x just takes up too much space in the menu bar. And it does not have as many features as it should. But SlimBatteryMonitor has all the features; you would want in a battery status icon. There are many customizations that can be made to the icon, which makes it worth to try. Oh, I forgot, it's free!

I use centimeters; it seems to make things bigger than they seem. :eek: The app is free, so you got nothing to lose, if ya don't like it. :cool:

Hold down the Command key, click on hold down on the old icon, then drag it away from the menu bar, and puff, it's gone.
