Alerts you when your Mac power cord gets disconnected.

Overview

UnPlugged is an application that notifies you when the power cord of the MacBook is unplugged or plugged back in. It also notifies you in regular steps about your batteries capacity while you run on battery or while you charge your battery.

Notifications are done using the Notification Center, Growl or with a built in notification window.

UnPlugged stays completely invisible while monitoring your power plug. Only a small Menu Item is visible, showing the current battery status.

Still works (version 3.0) on same Unibody MacBook Pro 17" running 10.12.6 Sierra. Very useful.

Not sure what happened, but after updating via the App Store from Unplugged 2.0 to 3.0, I'm getting issues with my Mac (seems like mini-stalling with some" Safari keystrokes?) and nearly non-stop Console error messages that say: " UnPlugged[271] -[NSWorkspace frontmostApplication]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0x100611800 " Now I don't know how to downgrade back to version 2.0 because they use the stupid App Store. I'm going to have to get the old version off a backup, if I can. Otherwise UnPlugged is simply going into the trash, permanently. Mac OS 10.6.8

Great app! I've been having problems with the power cord connection, and it's no fun discovering you're on battery when you thought you were on outlet, when it's at 10% ...

I've downloaded this program and liked how it doesn't use as resources or processing time as my own program. However, I really miss the audible alert that mine gives. If you could include some sort of beep or user selectable sound, I would switch over to your app. I only wrote PowerCheck because at the time there weren't any other programs that offered this funtionality. My programming skills are limited, but you seem to have a good grasp of it. I think it'd be also helpful to release this to open source, that way it could be included in HardwareGrowl, something I already use. Thanks!

Useful! The PowerBook G4 adapter can fall out of wall outlets a little too easily because of the weight of the power brick combined with the flimsy plug on a hinge and the lack of a third prong. Just today the adapter fell out of the wall outlet in a cafe a couple times (the outlet is loose because of the heavy usage by patrons) and I wouldn't have noticed if it wasn't for Unplugged. I have a clear view of the battery icon in the menu bar, but if I don't look up there, I might not notice the power state change. My only wish is that it was more integrated into HardwareGrowler so that Unplugged doesn't have to run as a separate application.

Seems the best of the lot. My 15" powerbook (AL) has developed the annoyance of "unrecognizing" the power-source at random moments, leaving my battery to drain. I've spent hours troubleshooting, but until I find the answer, this little app lets me know when it happens. Thanks! I wish I could set (with Growl or whatever) to notify only when power goes out. I usually know when I plugged in. Can that be two separate notices?

This told me every couple of seconds that I was running on battery. I started it while already running on battery.

Independence from Growl and low CPU usage make this the best of the breed. The notification window don't always come to the front though. Repeatedly flashing the screen in addition to an alert dialog would be cool. For the nattering nabobs, sometimes laptops are installed in racks or other settings in which the power connector is not readily visible.

Isn't that what the status light on the charger is used for?
