Battery Report creates detailed reports about your computer and any connected power sources. Power sources include power adapters that connect your Mac to the mains power, internal batteries such as laptop batteries, and uninterruptible power supplies.
Battery Report reveals information about your power sources that is not commonly available. This information includes power adapter's unique serial numbers, and the health of your internal laptop battery.
The information available in Battery Report's report varies depending on your Mac and your power sources. Modern batteries tend to include more information about their condition and state. Older batteries will still appear but may not display as much detail.
Battery Report includes information about all power sources available to your Mac. For uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) devices, this includes devices connected by a serial cable, USB cable, or over the network. If your UPS is supported by Mac OS X, it will appear in the report.

Battery Report Review
I tried this app because I noticed my laptop battery seemed to be running out sooner and holding a charge for less time. Battery Report did provide some information about the battery, along with information about power supplies.
But, there is no context provided for the reports. The report says my battery's health is "Good" but nothing else.
Is "good" the highest rating? Is it near the top, in the middle? I really haven't learned much about my battery from the app. Nothing useful, like how much life it has left in it.
The website says: "All DssW products come with help guides built in. You can find the guide under the Help menu in Mac 9 and Mac OS X. These guides are the best place to look for quick references, tutorials, and snippets of useful information to get the most out of your software."
But the help menu simply has refers to their web site and an email address for support.
The questions I have are simple and should be built into the interface.
What is the condition of my battery? ("Good" just doesn't cut it.)
What is my battery's life expectancy and how much remains?
Those answers should appear in the default report with no need for help or support.
I am a bit disappointed.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
