Ok, i have figured out a way to make the battery icon show up somewhere else in the XMB. You will need the following:
RCO Editor version 1.12B
A decrypted or 2.60 or lower system_plugin_fg.rco
ok, here is what you do:
put the system_plugin_fg.rco in the directory the RCOedit.exe is
click "Open RCO" and open the system_plugin_fg.rco
go to the "Page Data" tab
look under page indicator and click on the text "battery"
look in the window on the right, and look at the first 2 numbers
those numbers are coordinates
the first one controls where the battery icon is on the X axis in pixels, the origin being the center pixel.
the second one controls where the battery icon is on the y axis in pixels.
change these numbers to where you want the battery icon to be
you may want to repeat on the battery_shadow
remember, the origin is the center pixel, so you have to cater the coordinates to a 4 quadrant grid
