Battery meter
« on: May 28, 2014, 10:18:43 AM »

  How can I monitor my (550D) camera power in 1% increments instead of that standard camera icon?
  I've suggested it as  a feature request but I was told it was implemented already.   
  Pardon my ignorance. Don't kill me ..  :)

By upgrading to a camera whose battery controller reports the battery percentage.

Updated the features table to show this (look for CONFIG_BATTERY_INFO).
