Note: No Battery % in numerical form - only color indication. My reason and logic for wanting this follows:
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.
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 (post 2). That work inspired me further to make my own animated battery icon!
