A battery monitoring utility for notebooks and tablets

Smarter Battery is a battery monitoring utility for portable computers, intended to provide all the data of your battery, to help prolong its life and save its energy. It shows you the evolution of the battery's capacity during the charge / discharge cycles and computes a few important battery parameters, such as the wear level and discharge cycles count. This program continuously reads the battery data, making a prediction for the time remaining; it also features two alarms, for low and critical battery capacity, triggered by either the time remaining or the capacity percentage.

The evolution of battery capacity is graphically displayed for a longer period of time, up to 16 hours, so the complete charge or discharge cycles can be easily visualized and analyzed. Both Calibration and Fast Discharge procedures were updated to perform better on Windows laptops or tablets. Moreover, a battery gadget can be displayed by this utility; it has many format options and offers you a fast, clear view on the current battery state of charge.

What's new in this version?

  • Up to four batteries can be registered at a time (four serial numbers);

  • Redesigned Calibration and Fast Discharge procedures;

  • Optimized code for Windows 8 and 10, either laptop or tablet use;

  • A new ergonomic design, more information on each page;

  • Accurate computing for the battery wear level and discharge cycles;

  • Larger period of time (up to 16 hours) for the graph of capacity vs. time;

  • Brightness control and Restart commands were added to the battery menu.

The Information page is automatically displayed when this utility is launched and maximized. In the left side fields are displayed a few important parameters of the system battery (this is now common to all pages), while the right side ones contain if fact the general and model information. Above the left panel, there is the Battery # link; the # number, if it is displayed, indicates which battery is currently selected. A click on this link changes the selected pack and all the other information will be updated accordingly. When the application starts, first battery found in your system becomes the current one and it will be used as reference.

Smarter Battery - Information

The Graph page offers you an easy way to see and understand the evolution of the battery capacity over time. A thick orange line is drawn in a capacity (percentage) vs. time coordinate system for a default interval of 60 minutes. This graph can be saved as jpg picture (automatically named and numbered SBshot1, 2 and so on) by using the Save button. If the battery Mode is Discharging, a thin red line will be displayed in addition; it represents a possible path followed by the battery power, a path which has resulted from the time remaining or which is estimated by the software. For a good battery, this red line should remain parallel with the orange one most of the time, having no big angle changes (drops in capacity).

The Settings page contains all the program options. If a certain option is modified here, it is instantly executed; however, if you want to keep that change in the future sessions, you must save the settings using the Save button from the upper-left side.

The Alerts page contains two customizable battery level alerts (Warning and Critical), both of them being independent from the Windows' ones. If an option is modified here, it is instantly executed; you can save all these alert settings by using the Save button from the upper-left side.

Calibrate page: Under the Calibration title, there are a few statistical information of the first system battery, such as: the Wear Levels, Full Discharge Cycles, Usage Time and other calibration values; they give you the complete picture of your battery state and life. In order to keep all these data accurate, this utility must be kept running all the time on your computer, having the first battery selected. A Fast Discharge option is also present on this page.

The Home Page shows several buttons that directly connect you to the Home, Download and Purchase Pages of the program, as well as the customer's Registration data. There is also a button facilitating the e-mail communication with us; it automatically launches your default e-mail software, if installed, allowing you to send us the Battery Code.

This program is a demo version. You can test it ten times, each time for 15 minutes; to continue monitoring your battery after this period, you have to buy it. Once you made the online payment, send us an e-mail containing your notebook's battery code(s). The program license allows you to use Smarter Battery on a single computer, for an unlimited period of time. We will send you a second registration, for free, in case you change the notebook battery within five years.
