well, it's not an easy thing to extrapolate how much more time a battery has left on it. It's analogous to driving a car; if you're just idling, your gas will last a long time, but if you're on the highway with your AC cranked, driving 85 mph, then you will have to refuel a lot sooner. But what IS easy to do is measure the percentage of your tank that is left.
