Space efficient battery/UPS power menu item.

Overview

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.

I've been using this program since it first was released, but after updating to to OS X 10.11 (El Capitan), it will often not display the correct status after a change in power. When I am charging it will not show it, but will show I am not plugged in, or it will show battery is 100% and not charging. Or if the plug is removed, it doesn't update and shows charge is 100% and still plugged in. Killing the program and restarting will get it to work again, until the next change.

Still works under Yosemite. But has not been updated since 2009. Might be time to look for something else. iStat Menus 5 offers a battery icon. Trying that out.

SBM has not been updated in nearly 3 years. But it still works. Saves menubar space, offers some user customization, is simple as can be, and has never caused any problems.

Perfect battery status replacement for the menubar, this is how it should be. And works great with my APC UPS/battery backup as well. About the only thing I could suggest for this app would be to have the option to use Growl for updates - switching to battery/charger, fully charged, low battery warnings. And when the battery hits low enough to go to sleep mode, the warning window could be an HUD-style window (or Growl - I can't recall if there needs to be user input). Currently I use a widget for these notifications. But as-is, still excellent.
