Bring back audible battery notifications to your Mac!
BattMan is a little application living entirely in your menu bar and monitoring the status of your battery and power.
- Display a User Notification to inform you that the system switched from one power source to another (e.g. when going from power supply to battery).
- Display a User Notification to inform you that the battery is low. You can configure the thresholds for both remaining time and remaining percentage and the User Notification will be displayed for whichever comes first, giving you plenty of time to find the power supply, save your work or do a proper system shutdown.
- Give you an option to control which brightness level to dim the display to while on battery power. This option gives you more control over the option available in Mac OS X System Preferences - now you can choose the brightness level as percentage.
- Use several different icons in the menu bar to indicate battery and charging states. With one quick glance of an eye you'll instantly know whether the battery is fully charged or at a low level, or if there's a power supply connected to your computer.
- Display, in a sub-menu, all information about the battery that the system provides, such as: battery health, current capacity, voltage, charging or draining current, battery temperature and more.
- All notifications can be accompanied by an audible alert. These can also be turned off whenever you need to.
- Provide you with a quick access menu to quickly disable or enable notifications or audible alerts, without the need to open BattMan Preferences window. Ideal for meetings and other cases where you want to avoid distractions.
- List applications using significant energy.
NOTE: Although there's no reason for BattMan not to run on a desktop Mac, it's really only useful on a portable computer.
