Default [ND8/NDC] 🔋 [BATTERY] Plasma Battery! 🆕🆒🆓 & wickeddecimalbarwide_colors

Plasma Battery! v2

Note: No Battery % in numerical form - only color indication. My reason and logic for wanting this follows:
Code:
1.  I try to get away from micro-managing as much as possible.
2.  I have in the past always displayed my battery percentage.
3.  To be philosophical about such a trivial thing, I wanted to examine why and when I really wanted to know the exact battery percentage.
4.  Now I don't personally find it necessary to know the exact battery percentage, but to only become aware when certain key battery percentages are reached and actions taking place, which are obvious but I will state anyway:
     a.  When the phone is charging.
     b.  When the phone is charged 100%.
     c.  When the phone is discharging.
     d.  When the phone is getting fairly low (the relatively standard value of 15%).
     e.  Micro-managing becomes more important at these lower battery percentages so I like to be aware of when the phone is at 10% and 5%, too.
     f.  When the battery is truely near death (0%-5%).
5.  I am a very visually-oriented person, and so is my wife.
6.  My decisions on how I implemented this battery icon were based on the ease to which to quickly (i.e. when driving and using for GPS and/or music) without actually "reading".
     a.  Purple means charging.
     b.  Green means charged.
     c.  Blue means discharging above 15%.
     d.  Yellow means discharging 11%-15%.
     e.  Orange means discharging 6%-10%.
     f.  Red means discharging 0%-5%.
7.  Although logically, it would make sense to associate a smaller battery icon with a lower battery percentage value; the battery icon diminishing in size as it discharges, visually I want to be able to easily see the battery state so I choose to "zoom in" to the battery icon as the battery discharges.
Changes:
Code:
v2a: Removed Michel Granger's artwork used (without permission but was still waiting for an answer) for part of the 0-15% discharge images. I originally became aware of his work from the album Oxygène by Jean Michel Jarre, son of movie soundtrack composer Maurice Jarre.
-Thanks to his future wife (but now ex-wife), who is actress Charlotte Rampling for introducing this art piece to Jarre.

v2:  Re-created the discharge images with more precise math used to satisfy my "OCD".

Also more appropriate/interesting 0-15% discharge images.

Thanks to @droid716 for his port of the battery icon "kitkat_wickeddecimalbarwide_batt.zip" and for giving me permission to share my modified version with some colors.

v2 added. I'll add more pics of the battery later but basically the only difference between v1 and v2 is that 0 - 15% and 100% have a solid white background. I'm thinking of adding a black outline to the battery percentage for those for a v3.

Screenshots:
 

v1__________v2













I only have one screenshot of it in use at this time, and at this state it looks like the original. Here are also the key icons to demonstrate the difference between @droid716's Wicked 6.x themed one and mine.

I just downloaded it fine via Firefox on WIFI on the phone, and I'm not signed into my OneDrive account. What browser?

You're welcome, hope you like it. v1 is much better than v2. I hope my next battery, which isn't a mod of an already existing one but my own design, and of a style like none I have seen before. Good or not, others can let me know. Soon.
