Not only that it depends on Growl and PlaySound, it doesn't even run without them. I accept Growl, but I don't understand why it can't run with the internal sound of OS X?

I am no longer developing this application. Its features and usability have been passed by UnPlugged, and I recommend you use that wonderful software.

I had v.0.2 which functioned; v.0.4 crashes with a beep and a query as to where the prefs file is - the prefs file is sitting next to it in the folder. I tried to email the developer directly and had to screw around with Sourceforge.net (which, from my experience, is one of the least intuitively set up sites on the net) and gave up. Sorry, I'll check back for a later version. Even minimal documentation (with a contact email address!?) would be appreciated. iBook G4 10.3.9

I also noticed that ChargerCheck does almost the same thing. I also noticed that they were both originally released the same day and have the same MacUpdate description. I also know that I wrote this software to meet my needs and put it out there to meet others needs as well. I find it strange that something else out there popped up the same day my software was released. I wrote the ChargerCheck author regarding this to make sure he didn't use any of my code. My code has been released under the GPL licence and any software making use of it must be released under the GPL licence as well. ChargerCheck is not open source. ChargerCheck also uses much more CPU. ChargerCheck doesn't have features such as audible alerts. ChargerCheck is still on 0.1 and Power Check is already on 0.3

I'm just wondering how this is different from Charger Checker. It looks like both programs do the same thing in the same way.
