Monitor the Performance of Laptop Battery Using BatteryCare

BatteryCare is free software to monitor performance of your laptop battery. Normally most of the laptops come with some sort of battery information, but the information is basic and most of the times optimization options are missing. It addresses these issues. Apart from that, it also shows the time left for discharge, and shows it in both percentage as well as exact time.

Apart from Battery statistics, it also continuously monitors CPU temperature and shows it. This is a useful info as high CPU temperatures drain the laptop battery faster. The inbuilt software of that laptop always showed discharge time as a few hours, even though battery would drain out in around 30 minutes.
