So I learned a new trick and made this, all of the credit is to no2chem. I just extracted the files, sent them to him, had him walk me through the changes (and have him explain how and why), packaged it up, and this is the result. Tested on my own TP2!

Obviously, for the 1% incremental battery icons on the taskbar you will still need an icon pack and the registry entries. Refer to your favorite taskbar mod for this.
By the way, keep an eye out for no2chem's improved battery drivers - he also showed me how to do USB fastcharge and the likes. I will not mess with this, but I'm sure one day he will
EDIT: As further credit, no2chem was partially shown this trick by cmonex, whom we all know, respect and love
EDIT#2: If this driver does not work right for you (it should, though), you can also try Quentin-'s new driver: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=556318. This uses a different battery driver version as source, this one from a US device (the one I used is from an EU device).
