I installed Slimbook battery so I could manage my laptop's battery better than with the tools provided in the system settings, but I am unable to add the icon to the tray for better access (rather than going to Applications > Accessories > Slimbook battery preferences and then having to type my password).

Has anyone encountered some similar issue and found a solution? I'm running elementary OS 5.1.7 Hera, everything up-to-date. I tried installing gnome-shell-extension-appindicator and rebooting. Typing in the command to start slimbookbattery writes that it is already started/executed.

elementary OS doesn't support app indicators out of the box and since it doesn't use GNOME Shell, the extension you mentioned won't work. Have a look at Ayatana which is an extension providing indicators in elementary's wingpanel.
