This battery indicator looks like a default one, but it combines the battery icon and the remaining time indicator, hence saves some space in the status bar.
- Shows the remaining battery time or percentage in the compact way
- Check battery condition and hardware info, just hold Option key and click the battery icon
Requires a MacBook, MacBook Pro or MacBook Air.
- Added option to show time remaining and percentage at the same time
Ratings and Reviews
Much more Reliable
This battery app is very useful. It is way better than the original system's battery indicator.
One of the things that I liked about this app is having the time remaining integrated into the battery icon. With Apple removing this feature on their battery, using this app is more convenient when the "estimated time" is displayed immediately without having to click on the icon.
Another feature that I find very useful for this battery app is the ability to show your battery statistics. The stats really help to see if you are in need of replacing your Mac battery or not based on its condition.
One feature that I hope could be added in the next updated version would be the ability to indicate that the battery has became very low. This integration can be adressed by making the battery icon become a red icon when it has reached to 5% or 10%. This feature would be very convenient since it can alert users immediately that their Mac needs to be pluged in to avoid an "immediate shutdown".
Where’s the green icon?
As dumb as this sounds I really wanted a green icon in my menu bar for my battery icon, mostly to break up the monotony of all the white text and icons. Plus I thought it was cool it matched my iPhone. With the update the green icon is gone. Not even an option to use the plain white/black one. It was uninstalled as soon as I discovered that.
Shows Green in Menu Bar
Works well, but when plugged in the battery icon is a solid green color, which is distracting in the menu bar. Please provide a "black/white" version.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
