Vista has this one built-in, which shows in the notification area of the task bar:

I appear to be fully charged - it will show a power cord on it if you're running on mains power, and show different levels within the icon as the battery discharges.

Well, what is the one IBM have and what don't you like / what do you want to see? –  William Hilsum Sep 13 '09 at 11:45
    
The one that comes with the ThinkVantage crap on ThinkPads puts a large, ugly progress-bar-style battery indicator in your taskbar so I suspect s?he wants something like that. –  Joey Sep 13 '09 at 12:03
