An intuitive and user-friendly application whose main purpose is to provide basic information related to a laptop's battery and to recommend upgrades when needed
It is suited for all audiences, on account of its simplicity and can be run on any type of notebook. The information it provides covers the most important aspects of the device, such as current status, voltage, manufacturer, to name a few.
Following a short and complication-free installation process, you can make acquaintance with the user interface, which is intuitive and easy-to-use. All of the features are displayed out in the open in the main GUI, in an elegant and well-organized manner.
Thanks to its built-in detection engine, the battery is identified quickly and without intervention from the user. However, if no battery is detected, you will be notified accordingly.
The first indicator is related to the current status of the battery and its charge level, followed by information regarding voltage, power (identifies if the device is currently charging), manufacturer, chemistry (detects the type of technology it runs on, for instance Lithium Ion) and health (in percentage, where lower values indicate questionable well-being).
In addition to these, the program also displays indicators regarding temperature, charge cycles and remaining battery time; however, note that some of the parameters may not be fetched if they’re not made available by your battery.
BATExpert is a project that shows a lot of promise; despite being simple, it arranges for you to see some of the most important characteristics of a laptop battery, letting you know if it’s in good condition or needs replacing.
