Can the Garmin 820 display each etap battery charge?

I think I've read that the 1000 can but I'm wondering if the 820 can. I'm referring to FD and RD batteries, not shifter batteries. My 800 still works well but I'm feeling upgrade fever.

It seems to me that the only place you'd notice is on very steep climbs where you're in your lowest gear and struggling to turn the cranks. Then a longer crank might be beneficial.
