Coconut BatteryEver wonder why your PowerBook’s battery life seems to suck? If your battery life isn’t exact what is used to be, or you’re just curious about how much capacity is left in the darned thing, check out coconutBattery 1.1. This little universal binary application that gives you live feedback about the cells in your PowerBook or iBook, including:
- Current battery charge
- Maximum battery charge
- Current battery capacity
- Original battery capacity
- Battery load cycles
- Age of your Mac
- Charger connected
- Battery is charging
More battery goodness:

If coconutBattery detects that you have connected the wrong charger (i.e. an ibook-charger plugged in a powerbook) it will warn you! That’s a cool feature!
Of course you are able to save the current maximum capacity of your battery – with just one click! coconutBattery uses Apple’s new and really powerful technology names “CoreData” to realize that.
