My battery strength icon seems to have dissapeared anyone know how I can retrieve it and what causes these icons to suddenly dissapear as it happens with the volume icon as well quite often.

Is this on a laptop or tablet? Solution may be different for Windows or Android.

Put Cursor in blank part of bottom taskbar. Right click.Select "Properties", Left click. Then left click on customise. Should be an option for battery. Select.

On some laptops, the Battery Icon only appears when the charge is low or when the Battery is charging
