UnPlugged is an application that notifies you when the power cord of the MacBook is unplugged or plugged back in. It also notifies you in regular steps about your batteries capacity while you run on battery or while you charge your battery.

Notifications are done using the Notification Center, Growl or with a built in notification window.

UnPlugged stays completely invisible while monitoring your power plug. Only a small Menu Item is visible, showing the current battery status.

What's New in Version 3.0

- Notification Center Support
- Different Notification Intervals for Full or Empty Batteries
- Improved Menu Item
- Localizations

Great app that maximizes battery life

Great app to maximize battery life. It offers great granular controls for battery level notifications and can exclude certain applications (when watching movies or giving presentations, for example). Most importantly, it is rock-solid and has worked consistently. I use it to make sure my laptop battery is only used for shallow discharges, and it has definitely maximized my battery life (monitor historical battery life with Coconut Battery, another fantastic app which is a perfect complement to this one). Thank you to the Unplugged developer for a great little app!

Simple and Does The Job

This app has one narrow purpose, and it does that well. It is an app that anyone who wants to have visual cues of their laptop's battery states should install. With Notification Center set up to not collect the notifications from this app you can see the battery state as it drains (and if desired charges) in the same fashion as email, iMessage, and the like, but not have that pollute your Notification Center.

Excellent app

The app is great if you the kind that forgets to plug in your laptop. The reason why I did not give it 5 stars it's because, I think a few things could be added such as more info about the battery for example the amount of cycles and how many are remaining before servicing. A dimming option for the display when plugged in. If the developper considers adding this that would truly be a 5 star app. The developper is very responsive as well.
