Looks good so far. I can now reclaim a little of my menubar since battery status is not a critical status for me. Thanks!

I can't get it to work. Had it for over a week and all it tells me is "Current Charge Loading..."

The background CPU usage seems to be fixed with 1.0.6. I have been watching this issue closely and now it never goes over 0.3% on my powerbook. I have the interval set to 120 seconds and it stays at absolute 0 and then jumps to 0.3% every 2 minutes. Exactly how it should work. Thanks for a great widget!

Why does it take 5% of the CPU while totally idle (i.e., Dashboard is not even showing) ?

The Time Remaining feature isn't working properly for me. The amount of time changes constantly, and i have seen time as high as 97:57. See a screenshit here: http://www.pimpish.dk/widget.jpg

Great Widget! Don't suppose you could whip up a clock and airport strength widget in the same style? That would make my day! Thanks for a cool widget, much better than Apples ugly ones.

f**king hooray! - another completely pointless widget! - just as apple giving away developer tools allowed everyone who could follow a beginner's cocoa tutorial to inflict their incarnation of "textedit" upon us, so it seems that the invent of dashboard is going to doom us to an avalanche of 'widgets' which serve no uselful purpose whatsoever - apart from showing that the developer can string a couple of lines of javascript together guess what?! - i can already read my battery status in the menubar. why in the name of anal polyps would i want to bring up dashboard to do it [starts to bang head against wall repeatedly]

Maybe you have a small screen and don't want that battery monitor taking up menu bar real estate. Maybe you just don't want it in the menu bar for another reason. Who knows why. The point is that just because you like something to be one way, doesn't mean everyone wants it to be that way. So why don't you just get past that two-year-old "im the center of the universe" crap, and realize that this widget has it's audience, and you aren't in it, and that doesn't mean flame the developer, that means shut your mouth. If you ask any *real* developer, he/she could rattle of instance after instance that they added a feature that users requested, even though they didn't see the need for the feature. Obviously there's a market for a battery widget, hell, they have em for konfabulator. Leave the guy alone and let him do what he wants with his time. Also, i believe the point of dashboard is that anyone can make a widget. In fact, apple touts this as a positive. So he knows a bit of javascript and html and css and created a battery monitor. Thats the friggen point of dashboard. Its EASY to create a simple widget. This is a GOOD thing.

If I'd write comments to any app I don't need, I'd write for years... - so what's the purpose of your comment?

i apologise unreservedly for my earlier comment. having read the above replies i now realise that 'batterystatus widget' is the finest app ever created. i look forward to more groundbreaking and vitally useful widgets, from this and other developers. i would also like to apologise if my original comment somehow implied that anyone out there would ever throw together a pointless app just for the sake of getting their name 'up in lights' on versiontracker or macupdate. i now realise that every widget, every notepad replacement, every text editor and every "thing that goes in the dock and tells you something you already knew" out there is a worthy and honourable programming feat, serving only to fill a genuine need of the mac community. [shakes head sadly in disbelief]

Same bug(?) here. I also deleted the widget prefs but this didn't help - I still get a red diagonal strip through the battery on v.1.0.5 see screenshot: http://www.macparc.ch/stuff/screenshots/battery_widget_105.jpg
