We were just discussing the battery charge indicator icon used in the SXMO status bar. It can be seen here git.sr.ht/~mil/sxmo-docs/tree/

I do not know whether it is due to a bug or not but it is very hard to read, despite having 10 states. I tried to come up with an icon in pixel art that has just 5 states but is easier to read. I think I could even drop the charging indicator.

It's just a quick first draft but I hope it conveys the idea.

@murks this looks really simplistic and clean. I like how this looks.

@asleeponmykeyboard Thanks :]
Apparently it is not all that easy to make pixel fonts with FontForge but I found some sort of guide.

Now I just need to take the time and actually do it. Ideally I'd get these symbols integrated into the font that SXMO already uses, which is this one. nerdfonts.com/

It will take me some time to figure these things out, my focus is currently elsewhere.
