Battery Monitor v17.12

Battery Monitor v17.12 is now available.

The dashboard now displays battery health. This is normally 100% for a new battery, and slowly degrades with time. For example, my two-year old laptop shows a health of 78%, which indicates that only 78% of the original capacity is left. Average life has also reduced to ~8 hours compared to ~10 hours when it was new.

What’s New

  • #1 – Added appdata file for displaying information and screenshots in software centers
  • #4 – Display battery health in dashboard.
  • #5 – Increased the bottom padding for graph so that scrollbars do not overlap with time labels
  • Updated installer and build scripts
