BatteryBar is one of those simple little apps which you generally forget about, but its quite useful.
Many people have laptops now, and one very important piece of equipment is the battery. Without it…it might as well be a small desktop.
While battery technology has improved, and so has the power efficiency of today’s hardware, battery life quickly drops from a reasonable 3 hours to 2, to zilch.
What BatteryBar can do is monitor the state of your battery, gives you the usual power percent, estimated life, but it also keeps historical data and allows you to see the degredation of charge. You will see the amount of charge your battery can hold decrease ever so slightly, or, if you’re not lucky, ever so quickly.
Check out this simple little program: BatteryBar, which is quite useful in determining battery life.
