    Battery Tile and Taskbar App


    Hey guys,

    Are there any apps that provide a battery status as a live tile and in the taskbar? The only app I could find so far is batter bar however, in my opinion, it looks quite ugly.

    Thank you for your help.

    Go to the Windows Store and type battery status. You will find a number of them there.

    Sorry about the late reply.

    I have only found two - one that didn't work and one that needed me to tell it how much battery I had left. Are there any that I have missed? And what about a taskbar app?

    Thank you

    You might look at Kbattery that fits onto the task bar
