"Battery Status is a project for GNOME, that shows information about laptop battery state. It comes with a lot of additional features, so usual icon of GNOME Power Manager can be removed from Notification/Indicator Area. Don't worry about the battery icon in Ubuntu being a part of the Indicator Applet, when you first add Battery Status to the panel, it will ask to remove the default battery icon (but will keep the Indicator Applet).

" Gnome's Power Manager battery icon only shows the remaining battery power. But using the Battery Status applet, the user can access:

"* Battery Status dialog
* Power Statistics (provided by GNOME Power Manager)
* "Show" setting
* CPU frequency scaling (provided by gnome-applets/cpufreq-applet)
* Power Management preferences (provided by GNOME Power Manager)"
