In this post, we will show you how to display custom battery percentage icons in Windows 10 laptops. For example, when the battery level is 25% or lower, you will see a red color battery icon. And when the battery level is more than 75%, a green color battery icon will be visible, and so on. Though there is no built-in option in Windows 10 to set custom battery percentage icons, you can still do it using a free tool named Battery Icons.
This tool comes with pre-added battery icons (Red, Orange, Blue, and Green) for different battery levels or battery percentages. Pre-added emojis are also there to use as battery percentage icons. And, if pre-added icons are not satisfactory, then you can also add any ICO files for battery levels less than 25%, above 50%, above 75%, etc.
Display custom battery percentage icons using Battery Icons tool
Use this link and grab the latest version zip file of this tool. After this, extract it. It will prompt for a password (which is abc123) for extracting the zip file.
Enter the password and extract it. You will see pre-added battery icons as well as the EXE file. Execute that file and it will start running in the system tray of Taskbar.
Based on the current battery level, the battery icon associated with that battery level is visible. When the battery level is increased or decreased, battery percentage icons are changed.
Here is how it displays different battery icons based on the remaining battery:
- When the battery level is less than or up to 25%, it will show a red battery icon
- The orange battery icon is visible for battery more than 25% and up to 50%
- Blue battery icon appears for more than 50% and up to 75% available battery
- The green battery icon is displayed for more than 75% battery percentage.
Though the default battery icons are good enough, you can also add custom icons for different battery levels. For this, right-click on its system tray icon, and use the Settings option. In the Settings window, use the Browse button available for different battery levels, and add your icon files.
Press OK to save the changes.
Everything works well. But this tool also displays a tooltip at the mouse cursor or active window when the battery level is 25% or less and when the battery level is 100%. It might irritate you. So, if you don’t want to see that tooltip, then you can use Settings of this tool and select the Do Not Show Tool Tip option by using the drop-down menu available under Show Tool Tip section.
Hope you like this tool.
