Whats your battery wear?

Postby cirial » Fri Jul 31, 2009 10:22 am

My stock 3-cell battery has recently started to show in Battery Bar that it is getting wear.

Within the last 2 weeks it went from 0% slowly up to 1% in .1 increments. I'm sad if its going to keep doing this :(

What is everyone elses at?

Uh, how did you check it? My battery bar doesn't show any wear information.

Used this program: http://osirisdevelopment.com/BatteryBar/

Works so much better than the stock WinXP battery icon that is in the tray..

Ignorance is bliss. I'll know the battery is bad when it doesn't run without being plugged in. lol

I'll give the program a try. I mostly use my S10 plugged in so I'm not sure how long it will take me to get useful information.

Still very happy with my S10! It runs Windows 7 great!
