I had the same problem with my 10v and fixed it by migrating to Netbook Installer .8.2RC4. I'm not sure if this will fix the mini 9 as well, but if not you can install slim battery monitor which will work fine despite Apple's dodgy menu item.

This was discussed at length when 10.5.8 first appeared; I'm surprised your searches came up blank. Try the general OS X forum - it affected all hackintoshes, not just the Mini 9.
Thinking of trying Dropbox? Use this referal link and we'll both get an extra 250MB of storage.

Ok, I’m going to go ahead and put the steps on here that I took to correct this problem. Hopefully this will help other newbies avoid the “search nazis”
First things first, you need to download two things
This file which is a new kext
And this file which is a program called kext helper that will install the new kext
Once you have those two things, simply drag the kext file onto the kext helper icon and a small window will pop up. At the bottom of this window you will need to type your password and to the right of that is a button called Easy Install. Click that and let it take its course. Mine only took a few minutes but be patient if it takes longer, afterwards it will tell you good luck and to reboot (it didn’t automatically reboot my machine, I had to do it manually). After the reboot, the battery life indicator worked PERFECTLY!
I hope this helps!
