charge indicator light on batteries?

Curious why I can buy a $60 battery for my garden tools that has an indicator scale to tell me how much charge is left in the battery, yet my $60 batteries for my camera do not? It seems like photographers (some - at least the ones I've talked to) have been asking for this for quite some time. Is there a problem with putting this on a battery? I remember years ago Duracell had a scale on their AAs

p.s. Yes my V-mount batteries do have a charge indicator scale - I'm talking about the little batteries I put into a camera body such as the Sony NP-FZ100
