    "Not so good on my Dell 1525 with Win7 x64 bit."

    March 26, 2011   |   By robert_blankenship

    Version: Battery Bar 1.10 build 145

    Pros

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Cons

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Summary

    Probably not the fault of the app. My Dell has a few problems with Win7 x64, esp battery condition and power controls: that's why I was trying BatteryBar...

    "certainly not worth 10 dollars"

    February 26, 2009   |   By minagong

    Version: Battery Bar 1.10 build 145

    Pros

    very clear presented, shows exactly how much time your battery has left, automatically turns off the monitor and hard drive if the comp is not in use for a certain period of time

    Cons

    battery life not accurate,i know my laptop has around 3:30 hour after full charge yet it shows only 2:30
    when i change the background brightness,the battery life won't change, which doesn't make sense to me
    turns off when it THINKS the battery is low

    Summary

    it's a nice little program yet it's not accurate, certainly not worth to pay $10

    "Works pretty well..."

    June 01, 2004

    Version: Battery Bar 1.10 build 145

    Summary

    While not offering a great deal more than the basic Windows battery indicator, it does provide battery status at a glance - provided you are viewing the desktop. After moving from an IBM laptop to a Dell, I found myself missing the IBM's taskbar battery indicator. This feature is still missing from BatteryBar, since you can only view battery level while viewing the desktop, but it is better than the tiny taskbar icon that Windows uses. On my laptop, especially when using 2 batteries, the recharging timers and discharge timers are innacurate and I wish I were able to disable them. Overall, BatteryBar does what it says and I recommend it.
