BatteryInfo is a Dashboard widget designed to be a better looking, dashboard based replacement for the menu bar battery monitor. Thanks go to Luis Moreno for the graphics and to Marc Wolfgram for helping implement dual battery support.
It has the ability to display the percentage charge remaining. It can also display the time remaining on current charge, although this feature is somewhat ugly and needs beautifying, so if anyone has any suggestions for making it look better, mail me! It also fully supports dual-battery setups in Pismo laptops. If you have any comments, queries or suggestions, mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This widget is more accurate than other copies out there are it pulls it's information from the same place as the Apple menubar item. It also looks nicer IMO ;)
This widget is freeware, although donations to keep me in bandwidth are much appreciated. You can do this through the widget homepage.
Here are some key features of "BatteryInfo":
Graphically display battery status
Display the percentage charge remaining
Display the time remaining on current charge
Dual battery support
Localized in multiple languages.
Fixed display of several languages which would not show accented characters
Improved display of percentage battery charge
Optimisations reducing widget size.
