Indicates battery charge remaining *if* it's over 50%.
Only indicates battery charge remaining IF it's over 50%. The 'register' option would remove this limitation if you paid, except that it doesn't work, it opens a dead webpage at a defunct domain, and the manufacturer website known to CNet contains no mention of this program.
- battery level indicator
- remaining time indicator
- audible alerts
All these functions are in Windows included, so why a new program for it? I needed a feature that alerts when battery level reaches e.g. 80% during the charging phase (because your battery will have more lifetime if you keep its charge level between 30% and 80%), but in this program you cannot set the charging alert level (it alerts only when fully charged). I havent found such program on the net till now...

I've just written a program for Windows 7 that does just what you suggest (although it's set up to stay between 40% and 80%). You can check it out on Github https://github.com/jamiebull1/battery-lifesaver
Useful and accurate. Helps you easily see the correct status so that you don't run ou of battery while working on that latest project.
Some typos in menus, but whaat do you expect in freeware.
Have sponged off the program and understanding it's usefulness, I really should kick in the pocket change asked of the programmer. Making the audible alert has saved my butt a few times. Decent.
Installs and runs on Acer Aspire 751. Options are clear
uses too much screen area for such a simple function (all it has to do is display %-age full and time to empty/full.
Given how little utility it has - and that there's a FREE Power Options monitor included with windows, which does pretty much all this does, it's not worth paying for. I'm going to remove it - glad I didn't buy it.
Programme loaded but does not detect a battery present; there is, because I have been using without the line cord!
It shows the estimate amount of battery left, and how long it 's going to last.
Exact same problem as georgemannjr's review.
Microsoft box says ILLEGAL OPERATION after attempting to activate.
I'm using an IBM Think Pad PII-400 running Windows 98SE.

98SE? Doesn't work? Hmmm.. THAT'S STRANGE!

This program is a great tool especially for anyone who uses their computer on the go with battery power. You can't beat it.
This program is very good, it is much more accurate then other programs.
Tooltips sometimes don't work.
