Battery Life Time Remaining

I have a HP Pavilion laptop and when I hover over the battery icon it tells me the percentage of battery left but I was wondering if their was a way to get it to show me how much time I have left? I have seen other pc's with Windows 7 have this and I was wondering if mine can do this also. Thanks

FYI, don't depend on that time.

The time has served me well. I'm not picky about the preciseness but occasionally need a ball-park of time remaining.

Having a ballpark is nice, but once my netbook shows 1 hour left, I shut it down completely, because 1 hour based on 1 IE open is far from watching 1 hour of video or multitasking. And 1 hour on a laptop can drain quicker than you may think even on sleep.

Desslok,
I've got an ASUS netbook with fantastic and reliable battery life.

Power saver mode 6 hours, hi-performance 3 hours and on the ASUS the estimates are very reliable. Guess I'm lucky.

Have a look at batterycare

BatteryCare

I find the estimates accurate - plus it has many other useful options - and it's free

Thanks everyone I was just seeing if there was any way to make it appear next to percent remaning at the bottom. Maybe HP does not support that function.
