Battery Icon in Taskbar on a Desktop

I have a new Dell desktop. XPS 27 All-In-One. When I first set it up it showed a battery icon on the taskbar like my laptop shows. Initially, it showed 50%. Later, it showed 100% and has shown that ever since.
I am curious as to why a battery icon on a desktop?

The windows is probably set as "a laptop"

You can change that setting and the battery icon should disappear.

STEP 2 - In the Settings window, scroll down to the Notification area section and click the Turn system icons on or off link.
