Helps improve the life of your laptop battery

The main window of BatteryCare displays several details of your laptop's battery (current capacity, remaining time, status), or more detailed information (model, designed capacity, total capacity, current capacity, wear level, and others).

Maximized efficiency and minimum energy consumption

Advanced options can be adjusted from the Settings window, where you can set BatteryCare to disable Aero and the Sidebar when the laptop is running on battery, or even to pause high energy consumption services to increase battery life.

The Notifications section allows you to set up BatteryCare to recommend you battery calibration after a given number of discharge cycles, notify you when the battery is low or when it is critical (at a specific remaining capacity). It should be mentioned that these notifications are not connected to the ones issued by Windows.

In addition to all of these, power plans can be configured to be automatically selected depending on the current energy source. Other settings allow you to run the application in Administrator mode or to tweak the usage statistics.
