Default Dell Battery Meter (btmeter.exe) - 12-23-2009, 02:24 AM

Got this from Dell's driver page for the 10v -- what does it do? It installed C:\Program Files\Battery Meter\btmeter.exe which when I launch, just runs in the background.

Windows 7 already has the stock battery meter, and I can't find anything in the interface that btmeter adds.

Not sure about the mini 10v, but the battery meter on the mini 9 enables other stuff like caps-lock notifications or something similar as well. However, the extra features included are the only noticeable effects in Win 7.

It adds the ability to turn off battery charging while on AC.
