Helps your Mac battery by 20% (beta).

Overview

Endurance helps your Mac run 20% longer. No matter how good your battery is, everyone could use a little more battery power! Endurance is an app that helps your Mac run longer. Endurance runs in the background and when your battery level drops to a certain level, it automatically starts adjusting your settings and turning off features which use a lot of energy. Our tests have shown that it can give you about 20% more runtime, which you can spend writing, browsing the web and watching movies. Who wouldn't want 20% more?

  • How Endurance saves battery life: Customizable Endurance can automatically activate the following energy saving modules. Prefer not to use a certain module? You can turn it off so it won't bother you. Turning off Turbo mode. Your processor, the brains of your computer, can go into overdrive, which uses up a lot of processor. By turning off Turbo, your computer will run a little bit slower, but it'll last a lot longer.

  • Quitting greedy apps: Did you know that Chrome can take up 20% of your battery, even when it's just open in the background? Endurance keeps track of what's gobbling up your energy and puts those apps to sleep. Reopen them, and your tabs are right where they were.

  • Dimming your screen: Your big shiny screen takes a ton of electricity to run. Endurance can slowly dim it over time, but like a frog in boiling water, you won't even notice.

  • Hide background apps: Your Mac is smart enough to slow down apps which are hidden offscreen. So we just automatically minimize them when they're in the background.

Endurance explores some well-worn territory, but it does so in a way that feels new, refreshing, and truthfully useful. So many battery life extension applications are, at best, benign, and at worst, openly dishonest. Their inner workings are often hidden behind a veil, leaving you to wonder if anything is even happening at all. The screen dims and you get a notification that things are going great – but then your Mac dies and it doesn’t matter anymore. Endurance, on the other hand, does 5 things – only 5 things – and it does them all with complete transparency. And they actually work. The obvious step, which is to dim the screen several percentage points below what it was before low power mode began, clearly helps; a laptop’s screen draws the most power. But Endurance’s ability to monitor apps and processes that drain power at an unusual rate is its key feature, alerting you with tasteful notifications. It’s a helpful feature that doubles as an informative tool, letting you know what apps are regular offenders. Finally, Endurance’s ability to hide inactive apps is a bit undercooked but still very intriguing; it almost doubles as a productivity tool, encouraging focus to be spent entirely on active apps. Ultimately, Endurance is a refreshingly honest tool that lightens the load on your battery and will surely improve with time.

Endurance does, at times, use lots of CPU itself (latest version, 2.0 / 36, 38 or whatever they call it) – so for me, it's a no-go, and I'll be purchasing Disable Turbo Boost Pro. Also annoyed that it disables its power-management features when connecting to power. I'm using an app like this to tame my 2010 MBP which runs very hot by design. Not just to save battery. Also to save my lap from getting fried! Apart from that, the app worked well, although an uninstaller would be appreciated, considering how malware-deeply it infects your system with its files!

Endurance is the only battery app among those that I tried and that really has an impact to increase battery time. It's a shame it never reached 1.0 and looks currently unmaintained.

I would give this a very high rating except for one thing: it behaves as malware. It buries the startup file deep in your mac where you'll never find it: it's not in the System Preferences, nor is it in the User Agents, nor System Agents, nor System Daemons, nor Global Agents, nor Global Daemons. There's no preference pane to choose not to boot it up. The Download does not come with an uninstaller. For all practical purposes, you've been infected with malware.
