Battery Health Monitor shows you immediately how your Macbook battery is going. As soon as you launch it, you'll see the status of your battery, whether it's not chargeable, if it's depleted, or if the battery is charging, among others.

We found the colored bars very indicative of the levels of your battery, which you can also get in percentages or Milliamp Hour. The application also gives you indications on charge cycles and voltage strength.

The only real disappointment is that Battery Health Monitor doesn't tell you how much battery life you have left depending on your usage.

There's many different things you'll do on your Macbook, like watching videos, editing photos or simply writing up notes, and every task uses up very different amounts of your battery.

Changes

  • Updated to improve compatibility with Aluminum PowerBook G4 models.

Battery Health Monitor is a free utility for PowerBook and iBook owners that monitors virtual all battery health parameters and displays them in an easy-to-read format.

Original capacity is an indication of the battery's storage when it was new. Current capacity indicates how much that original capacity has changed with use.

Current charge shows the battery's current charge state while Charge Cycles indicates how many complete charge/discharge cycles the battery has experienced.

The percentage value indicates approximately what portion of the number of total recharge cycles the battery supports have been used. The annunciators at the top of the window indicate the state of the computer's power manager circuit and the battery or batteries installed.
