Battery meter missing from Quick Settings on HD+

Status: Under Review

One of the nice features of the NC/NT was the ability to see the battery meter % when tapping on Quick Settings. This % is now buried in the settings menu. Please return it to the Quick Settings screen. Thanks!

Would like to have the option to show the percent number and not just a bar also

Given that the wifi toggle is there, the airplane mode toggle could be replaced by battery status and be more helpful most or all of the time.

Is there any follow up? I love the "track your battery" feature on my Noook Color and am both surprised and disappointed a similar feature isn't available on my hd?

Well, it's been 7 months since it was requested, so no, not a lot of progress has been made.

 

Whike it irritated me to buy something to get back functionality that should have just been on the stock device, the dollar it cost was well worth it. There was an app called GSam Battery Monitor Pro (had a free trial version). It allowed you to put the battery percentage up in the notification area so you dont have to drill down through settings to get the %. It had a correspinding battery icon % app. Think I bought the latter icon app for a dollar or two to get it to work the way I wanted it to. Didnt have to buy the full battery monitor pro app (is running in trial mode, which just means less features.) This was before the Google Play Store was added.There might be better options available now (but someone else will need to recommend them.) Hope that helps.

I agree with this need.  For my Nook HD, I ended up buying the APP "GSam Battery Monitor" & the "GSam Battery Monitor Icon Pack" in Google Play  which places an icon on the screen.  It shows the % remaining.

I, too, would love to see this available on  the HD and HD+. I was spoiled from having it on the NC.
