Battery Guard

By Avocado Hills, Inc.

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Battery Guard tells you how long your battery will last! It is a fully featured, enhanced replacement for the battery tray icon that comes with your Mac.

Battery Guard shows the time left on your battery right next to its icon! If you'd rather show the percent charge, you can see that too.

Clicking on the icon opens a panel to quickly see loads of useful information about your MacBook's battery:
- charge level
- capacity
- original capacity
- time remaining

It's FREE! No reason not to download it right now! Enjoy!

If you would like to get rid of the built-in battery monitor:

1) Go to System Preferences -> Energy Saver.
2) Uncheck the box at the bottom that says: "Show battery status in menu bar".

What's New in Version 1.1.1

- Bug fixes
- Now warns you when 10% of battery is remaining
- Compatible with OSX Mountain Lion

It works

It does what it advertises to do, so I can't complain. I would love to have the option to show time and percentage, though.

Doesnt work with OS X 10.9

Just installed this and doesnt seem to work with OS X 10.9 Nothing shows up in the tool bar/status bar at the top, just a blank icon. Hopefully they get this fixed because its exactly what I was hoping to find on the app store.

One of the Best

I searched a lot before getting this one and it is simple but easy to use, compact but easy to set up, graphically clean and concise but not overly so, inexpensive as they get, performs what you ask for but not a big menu, has versatile settings but not enough to confuse. SO…. I recommend it to any and all. THanks Battery Guard for an affordable and well designed app!!!!!
