For most of the 'safer' chemistries voltage works well enough for the 80%-20% range which is really what I care most about.

NiMH for instance goes from starting to reverse-flow at 0.9v up to 'OMGWTFHax' full charged at 1.5v, with the 0.9v state taking concerted forced effort to reach well after reaching 1.0v, and the 1.5v state lasting seconds or at best minutes. So tracking voltage from 1.000v-1.500v as a numerical readout would let me gauge (with practice and experience) how much battery life I have left.

I'm used to interpreting non-linear readouts and making estimates, that's what the human brain is good at. :) So no, not hunting for someone to code and program a true 0%-100% gauge, that's almost impossible even today. =o.O=
