On my new Retina MacBook Pro I'm finding I can't show the time remaining next to the battery icon on the menubar. The option is available in the right-click menu on non-Retina laptops.
Any ideas on how I can get this useful indicator?
Battery Time Remaining is a github-hosted, open source project that aims to solve this problem. From the project page:
No, it seems that the feature at the moment is unavailable.
Another thread has already checked other ones at the Apple Store and with other customer who have it:
It might be something that they add back to it in a software update or in Mountain Lion. Weird that it is missing though.
Hope that helps.
