    It's due to security closed o.s., % updates every 15 mins for all batt apps

    Yes, simply download and install "My battery Lite" then select it on lockscreen customization options

    Thanks for advice but battery percentage update every 15 min like on other apps so its useless.

    I don't see the need for such up to the minute accuracy. As long as I have a general idea how much battery I have left, I'm good to go.

    Why? How much does your battery drop in 15 minutes?

    Mine was taking hours, sometimes not even updating overnight. I de-installed it (the one just called "Battery"), figured best-case it was just doing more harm than good.
    For whatever reason, I just like the "at a glance" percentage, more than the battery gauge. I like the gauge too, but want to have a percentage app; every 15 minutes would be just fine, if mine did that. I'm on a 950XL, if anyone's wondering.
    On 8.1 it worked perfectly, seemed like it was always correct, or at least as correct as a really recent reading, and didn't seem to affect my battery life either. Sure wish they could get this fixed on 10.

    Seconded, although I'd like to see it on the main screen too, like in 8.1.
    I don't use Glance right now, it's insanely battery-intensive, unless you have it on the 30-second setting, and even then, it seemed to be nuking my battery on a regular basis.

    Are you sure? I got Glance forever and I got 1 - 2 % standby draining! Check Battery app lists, wich is the culprit

    Which phone you got

    950XL.
    This is more or less how my phone fared. I have to admit, I turned it off probably around the 200's, haven't tried it since.

    For those who need to see the percentage, how about just checking the top bar for the battery %? Just swipe down, take note and swipe back up/lock screen

    Yep, that's exactly what I've been doing, since moving from 8.1.
    It's not a bad way to do it, but it's one more swipe, after unlocking, or whatever. I wish MS would fix whatever the issue is with having a tile update; 15 minutes would be great, anything for at-a-glance-percentage.
    I finally uninstalled my "Battery" app, which had been so dependable, on .318, since it was often saying things like 47%, when it was 100% for several hours, and sometimes 99%, when it was down say at 38%. Yes, I had it background enabled, just like on 8.1, but it never seemed to get a time-slice, unless I opened, or maybe once or twice a day, otherwise. Sometimes it would sit, same number, all day long.
    I think it's all my math/CS/physics background, something like "it's somewhere between 1/2-maybe-3/4" bugs me. It's good for a fast glance, but annoying otherwise, IMHO ;-]

    The Glance suggestion is nice. All the rest explains yourself how some 3rd part apps are so unrielable

    This is the easiest way to check battery. And it makes for less clutter. I think they designed the battery without the percentage there as to reduce clutter and make things look cleaner. Makes sense to me.

    Agreed, 100%, it's a GREAT way to do exactly this!

    Except we're about choice (hopefully anyway), and having a live-time (semi-live anyway) is a choice that I want to make, not have dictated by a new feature that works for some.
    I'm fine with the new feature, it's well-implemented and thought-out, everything about it is cool. Except that I want my live tile too ;-]

    Being a Tech PM (and former Dev), I really like use-cases:
    Say I'm out on a ride, have put in 30mi, and looping back home will give me 40, but I'm sitting at an intersection, debating about an extra loop, that will add a nice 20mi, and has a good 1500' climb. But, the weather is looking pretty threatening (as it often does in the greater Seattle area).
    I whip out my 950XL, and unlock it. I want to check the radar, and possibly the radar loop, depending on my battery. What I want to do, is unlock my phone, see that I have >50% battery, and if so, check the loop, but if not, just the single-screen radar (1 vs 7 screens of data load). I want to also be able to go immediately from the unlock, to my pinned radar, either single or looped. Instead, as it stands, I have to do one more swipe down, to see if that battery indicator means 47 or 60%, maybe you can tell from the icon, it's tricky.
    While I agree it's not a big burden to have to do the swipe, eventually (I actually do this scenario quite a bit, more or less) it gets pretty annoying, whereas if I had a 15-minute-accurate live tile, well I'd know as soon as I unlocked, which pinned tile to use...
