FruitJuice is a new concept in Apple notebook battery health. Built exclusively for Apple notebook computers, it provides monitoring, notifications, daily battery recommendations, guided maintenance and diagnostics to ensure that you achieve the longest runtime and lifespan from your battery.
In order to prolong its life, Apple recommends using your notebook battery on a regular basis. But how do you know if you're using it enough? Is the way you're using your battery shortening its life?
FruitJuice is here to help by demystifying the process. There is a lot of power packed into this menu bar application.
Complete Power History:
- FruitJuice keeps a detailed record of your battery charge and discharge activity.
- See how much time you spend on your machine and if it is on battery, charging or fully charged.
- See totals and percentages for any range of dates.
Active Guidance through Daily Recommendations:
- After running for 7 days, FruitJuice will begin to make daily recommendations for the total amount of time to spend on battery to keep it in top condition.
- Recommendations are tailored to your usage patterns.
- Flexible menu bar configuration allows you to see as much or as little information as you wish.
- FruitJuice will suggest a Maintenance Cycle upon installation to establish a baseline.
- Notifications will let you know when to plug in or unplug your machine.
- Subsequent Maintenance Cycles will only be recommended only if your usage falls outside Apple's guidelines.
- Smarter battery management through configurable notifications.
You can see:
- Percent power remaining
- Battery time for today
- On battery target reached
- Maintenance required
- FruitJuice will suggest a Maintenance Cycle only if your usage necessitates it.
- Notifications to help you avoid the surprise of the "You are now running on reserve battery power" message.
