Monitor Your Windows Laptop's Battery
Welcome to Tekzilla Daily. I'm Veronica Belmont. If you're suing a laptop, you know it’s crucial to keep an eye on your battery life so you don’t suddenly find your machine going black at the worst possible moment. Well, if you're using Windows, I have just the tools to help you do just that.
It’s called Batt Cursor available for free at En.battcursor.net. Once installed, you’ll be asked to configure the tool but that default settings work just fine. When your laptop is unplugged, you’ll see a little number below your mouse’s cursor. This indicates your current battery level. When your battery drops below a certain percentage, your cursor will turn yellow warning you that your battery is getting low.
And, when you get really low, the cursor will turn red warning you that you’ll only have a few minutes before your battery is completely dead. If you open up the options, you’ll be able to tweak the different settings like what the warning and critical battery levels are and what colors to use for each. You can empower Batt Cursor to handle your power profiles and to have a change from high performance to balanced and then to power saver depending on the battery level. So, if you want to make sure you never get caught off guard by a dead battery, try Batt Cursor today.
