Description of problem:
The battery icon has insufficient contrast between the "full" and "empty" sections of the icon.  This makes it difficult to determine at a glance what the battery status of the system is.  Although mousing over the icon will create a text popup, the icon should be easily readable.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Bring a laptop running on battery power into a non-optimal viewing environment.
2. View the battery status icon and attempt to assess charge status.

Actual Results:
Must squint and examine the icon closely or mouse over to obtain popup before battery status can be assessed.

Expected Results:
The status should have been immediately obvious based on the "fullness" of the icon.
