MiniBatteryStatus widget monitors battery status and charge percentage. It displays colorful information
to quickly notice your battery conditions.
The widget assumes different colors depending on the remaining charge of the battery. It is also aware of
battery charging and plugged status. User can choose if the widget should display percentage, remaining
time, capacity (current/maximum) and cycle count or just the charge gauge.
MiniBatteryStatus is definitely a must have for all Mac laptop users.
Growl integration. Be aware of what happens to your battery even when you’re not
looking at Dashboard. MiniBatteryStatus tells you when it’s time to recharge your battery, when
you’re done charging and when the power source has changed with Growl notifications.
Universal Binary. You can run MiniBatteryStatus on both PowerPC iBooks and Powerbooks
and Intel MacBooks and MacBook Pro’s.
Lots of colors. Thanks to the revolutionary “arcoiris” engine,
the widget color varies with continuity from green to red. Enjoy a plenty of awesome nuances
from acid green to coral red.
Small widget size to save Dashboard real estate. iBooks and powerbooks have limited
desktop surface. Leave room to other cumbersome widgets, still monitoring your battery with style and no clutter.
Rewritten from ground up. Completely event driven. Same data from the system status item,
Share battery data. The included battery data sharing service will make your battery
remotely monitorable by MiniBatteryLogger.
System administrators will be able to monitor the available energy supply of all laptops over
the local network.
Minimum system requirements are Mac OS X 10.4 “Tiger” or later, and of course a battery-powered Macintosh.
