As laptops have become more advanced so the need for increased power consumption and longevity has increased for mobile system users.
On many occasions it can come down to mobility over performance and battery life.
Battery pack lifecycle is how often a battery can be recharged before its charge capacity starts to degrade (for example, when a fully charged battery is reduced to 60 percent of the original battery charge capacity).
This reduction of charge capacity in turn leads to a significantly reduced battery life.
I have had this issue since I first downloaded the first preview builds.
This is my machine stats according to System info: Was one of the 7/8 fixes this?

Check the consumption against the manufacturer’s specification, it may differ slightly and older machines are almost certain to use more.
As stated in title - no battery icon when not plugged in - and no battery/power icon when plugged in - also no locations icon.
I do not care much about the locations one, but the battery one is pretty much vital.
A couple of different symptoms can come along with having a battery percentage meter on your Mac that is inaccurate.
The most obvious one is your computer randomly shutting off and dying before the battery percentage hits zero percent or even gets low.
