Laptop battery care software for Windows Vista and XP

Taking good care of laptop battery can significantly increase its lifespan. You should start battery care right from the day you unpack the laptop. There are several techniques in order to do that.

BatteryCare is a light weight, freeware tool for optimizing the usage and performance of Laptop’s battery. It monitors the battery's discharge cycles and helps increasing it's autonomy and improving its lifetime.

The program features the following: It gives complete battery information such as wear level, capacities, consumption, manufacturer, etc.

It monitors the battery discharge cycles and accurately records when a complete discharge cycle is performed. A notification balloon pops up to remind that a full discharge is required when the configured number of discharge cycles is reached.

It automatically disables the graphics accelerated theme in Vista and other demanding services that degrade battery lifetime. When the laptop plugged on mains, the theme is re-enabled.

Depending on the power source of the computer, BatteryCare can automatically select the power plan you prefer.

In battery mode, the notification tray icon shows the remaining time and percentage of battery.

Battery Care is compatible with Microsoft Windows XP, and Vista and requires Microsoft .NET Framework Version 2.0 for Windows XP (Via – Webtrickz)
