ChargerChecker for Mac0.5

28 March 2006

Alerts you when your PowerBook power cord gets disconnected.

What is ChargerChecker for Mac

ChargerChecker is the best, most full-featured power state alert app available. It works in conjunction with Growl to give you on-screen notifications when your laptop's charger is connected or disconnected. With the release of the MacBook Pro, Apple also introduced a brand new power adapter that uses the MagSafe connector. While this innovative new feature can save your laptop from being jerked off the table by a careless passer-by, many people have complained that their power adapter becomes unplugged inadvertently without them ever knowing it. This can be a huge problem when you pull your laptop out in the airport to put the finishing touches on your upcoming presentation only to find that it was mistakingly unplugged and the battery is completely dead. Install ChargerChecker and never worry about a discharged battery again.

While the functionality is good (it's nice to have a visual warning when your PowerBook power supply is disconnected), this app is definitely NOT the one to use. Problem: the application prevents the PowerBook from sleeping (Mac OS X 10.4.6 at least). I did extensive troubleshooting and finally attributed the problem to this app. Second problem: ChargerChecker prevents the disk drive from spinning down. In addition to draining the battery more quickly (my life dropped 15-20 minutes when running this app), it made estimates of battery life unreliable. Third problem: actually an issue rather than functional problem. This application phones home (Little Snitch revealed this).

Pointless app!! Go to System Preferences > Energy Saver and change 'Other Options' Settings for: Battery to 'Reduce the brightness of the built-in display when using this power source'. If the cord is unplugged the screen will dim noticeably. Of course it won't dim if originally at 1 bar, but if you're plugged into power why are you using the screen on minimum brightness?!
