SlimBatteryMonitor is a space-efficient replacement power gauge for your Mac OS X menu bar. It monitors both laptop batteries and many UPS batteries. You can select different views for when powered, charging or on battery... even instruct SlimBatteryMonitor to automatically hide itself in some circumstances (e.g. while fully charged).

A graphical icon shows the power remaining, and can be accompanied by a text description (battery charge in percent, or time remaining). Colours indicate whether the system is fully charged, charging or on battery. In some cases, SlimBatteryMonitor can be 70% slimmer than Apple's system meter... With SlimBatteryMonitor you'll have room for other important menu bar items.
