I'm running Gnome Shell 3.20.4.

Is there a way to show the battery percentage next to the icon?

Gnome Shell is using a reduced set of icons for the battery, thus not being accurate.

Since the icon dependent on the percentage, it must be available.

Turns out it's pretty simple:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface show-battery-percentage true

And to turn it back off:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface show-battery-percentage false

Well, I hope this comes handy for someone ;)
