Hi Ronald - I'm not aware that this currently exists. I know this doesn't really help and I'm sure you're already aware but battery life can be observed by hitting CTRL+ALT+S at startup of the device.  

 

It's worth noting that one of the positive things about Chrome OS is that it's an open source operating system, and allows anyone to read about bugs, make feature requests and even influence the prioritization of those features. It looks like this feature you mention was opened in 2016 -- I recommend that you hit the star button in the top left hand corner which signifies interest in the issue for the dev team: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=591133&q=battery display in kiosk mode&sort=-modified&colspec=ID Pri M Stars ReleaseBlock Component Status Owner Summary OS Modified

 

Cheers.

I modified my storefront for this exact case. Add this custom code to Script.js on Storefront 3.x. 

 

This displays clock and battery life for Workspace on chromeos. Note: Battery isn’t supported for Windows client, but clock will work. 
 

 

(function () {

    var div2 = document.createElement("div");

    document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0].appendChild(div2);

    div2.outerHTML = "<div id='txt' style='height: 50px; width: 150px; color: white; top: 0; left: 60%; border-left: 2px solid white; border-right: 2px solid white; border-bottom: 2px solid white;  background-color: #1378a6; font-size: 18px; font-family: Segoe UI, sans-serif; position:fixed; cursor: pointer;text-align:center'></div>"; 

    startTime();

function startTime() {

  var today = new Date();

  var h = today.getHours();

  var m = today.getMinutes();

  var s = today.getSeconds();

  m = checkTime(m);

  s = checkTime(s);

    

  document.getElementById('txt').innerHTML = "<b>The Time is Now <br>" + h + ":" + m + ":" + s +"</b>";

  var t = setTimeout(startTime, 500);

}

function checkTime(i) {

  if (i < 10) {i = "0" + i};  // add zero in front of numbers < 10

  return i;

}

}());

 

 

 

 

var div3 = document.createElement("div");

    document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0].appendChild(div3);

    div3.outerHTML = "<div id='batt' style='height: 50px; width: 150px; color: white; top: 0; left: 75%; border-left: 2px solid white; border-right: 2px solid white; border-bottom: 2px solid white; background-color: #1378a6; font-size: 18px; font-family: Segoe UI, sans-serif; position:fixed; cursor: pointer;text-align:center'></div>";

 

 

navigator.getBattery().then(function(battery) {

  var battDiv = document.getElementById('batt');

  var battL = battery.level;

  battL= battL.toFixed(2);

  document.getElementById('batt').innerHTML = "<b>Battery <br>" + battL*100 +"%</b>";

  if (battery.level > .75){

    battDiv.style.backgroundColor='green';

        battDiv.style.color='white'; 

  }

  else if (battery.level > .5){

      battDiv.style.backgroundColor='yellow';

      battDiv.style.color='black';

  }

  else if (battery.level > .25){

    battDiv.style.backgroundColor='orange';

    battDiv.style.color='white'; 

  }

  else {

    battDiv.style.backgroundColor='red';

    battDiv.style.color='white'; 

}

 

  battery.addEventListener('levelchange', function() {

    var battDiv = document.getElementById('batt');

    var battL = this.level;

    battL= battL.toFixed(2);

    document.getElementById('batt').innerHTML = "<b>Battery <br>" + battL*100 +"%</b>";

    if (this.level > .75){

    battDiv.style.backgroundColor='green';

        battDiv.style.color='white';

    }

    else if (this.level > .5){

      battDiv.style.backgroundColor='yellow';

      battDiv.style.color='black';       

    }

    else if (this.level > .25){

    battDiv.style.backgroundColor='orange';

    battDiv.style.color='white';

    }

    else {

    this.style.backgroundColor='red';

    battDiv.style.color='white';

    }

 

    

  });

});
