Simple Battery 1.1 for Rainmeter by Klaw31 Simple Battery 1.1 for Rainmeter by Klaw31
A very simple battery indicator for your desktop.

If you have any requests or problems, don't hesitate to leave a comment, I'll be glad to help you !

---------------
Installation
---------------
Just install Rainmeter, if you haven't already, download the .rmskin file, double-click on it, and Voilà !

If you want to change the size of the skin to fit your needs, check the SimpleBattery.ini file and lookup the "scale" variable and change its value.

this skin uses up a ton of CPU, presumeably because it's updating the battery state as often as it possibly can. 

If you could make it so it only checks the battery every minute or longer it would work a lot better.

pls use:
ImageName=#@#Images\battery-empty.png
X=(75*#SCALE#)
to bypass the bug there the battery is not in place.
After that you can simply use any scale.

Is there a way to scale down the battery? I tried using the scale= option in the .ini file only to find that the bars indicating power are pushed to the left a little. Also, could you add a way to tell exactly how much power the battery has? Maybe a little number by the side or something that appears when moused over. Thanks!

I changed the scale to:

[Variables]
BATTERYHEIGHT=1024
BATTERYWIDTH=1024
BARHEIGHT=350
BARWIDTH=150
CHARGINGHEIGHT=220
CHARGINGWIDTH=220
SCALE=0.08
COLOR=0

And to move the battery bars back in place, I changed:

[MeterBatteryFirstBar]
Meter=Image
ImageName=#@#Images\bar.png
W=(#BARWIDTH# * #SCALE#)
H=(#BARHEIGHT# * #SCALE#)
Y=((340-140)*#SCALE#)
X=((970+75)*#SCALE#)
