Re: No estimated battery life in meter - 11-18-2008, 05:24 PM
I just installed this application which gives time remaining: http://vb.nitescifi.com/batterybar.html
It requires .Net 2.0 to run, and uses a special toolbar rather than a system tray icon. It does somehow show battery wear (not sure how it calculates it.)
Edit: After runnning for about 15 minutes it now will display time remaining if you click the battery icon (it switches between time remaining and percent remaining.)

Edit: This meter shows my battery life remaining as 5 hours 24 minutes but the full lifetime as 5 hours and 3 minutes. I think it will have to have a full discharge and recharge to callibrate itself properly. Hope it works because I like this one best so far.
Edit again: Ooops. Now it shows 3 hours and 46 minutes remaining with a full lifetime of 4 hours and 23 minutes. I wonder where it will settle :?
