Laptop battery power reminder software BattCurser

Are you tired of always having to look in the taskbar of your laptop to see how full your battery is? Then here is a solution. BattCursor shows you the battery power in percentage directly under your mouse curser where it is almost always visible.

There are several user definable values like opacity, colors for different battery levels (e.g. yellow for low, red for critical) to make it more usable. Moreover it also offers battery –saving functions to help increase the battery runtime.

For example, dimming down the display brightness if the computer is inactive, automatically disabling the Windows Sidebar and Aero glass, etc.

Furthermore BattCursor offers the option of an OSD for changes to the display brightness and system volume, and thus it can replace some OEM software completely.

BattCursor works with Windows Vista and Windows 7 and is free for personal use. Download (556KB Zip) from the program’s home page. [similar program]
