Battery Guard tells you how long your battery will last! It is a fully featured, enhanced replacement for the battery tray icon that comes with your Mac.
Battery Guard shows the time left on your battery right next to its icon! If you'd rather show the percent charge, you can see that too.
Clicking on the icon opens a panel to quickly see loads of useful information about your MacBook's battery:
- charge level
- original capacity
- time remaining
It's FREE! No reason not to download it right now! Enjoy!
If you would like to get rid of the built-in battery monitor:
1) Go to System Preferences -> Energy Saver.
2) Uncheck the box at the bottom that says: "Show battery status in menu bar".
- Bug fixes
- Now warns you when 10% of battery is remaining
- Compatible with OSX Mountain Lion

Great app, needs dark mode support.
When I turn on Dark Mode in Mojave, the icon stays dark. it does not turn light like the others. I can't see the battery percentage without clicking on the empty space in my menu bar. Im giving 4/5 because it has served me so well in past years, giving me insight to hop my Mac will do that day. Best battery app by far. The thenths place percentage and the raw mAh data are also helpful. would give it 5/5 if it supported dark mode. Thanks Avocado Hills!
claims to warn at 10% battery but doesnt
For a few years now OSX and macbook power management is so bad that each time I am getting to the point where the system should just suspend until connected again, and I am in a fullscreen game where I dont see the battery status, I end up having to reboot the system. This app was supposed to help work around this apple software quality issue, and it doesn’t, same thing happened again. No audible alert, the system just blanks out and quikly connecting the power cord does not prevent it from becoming unresponsive fror a long time, usually comes back up one more time then blanks again just as I am working on it again, then eventually have to reboot to regain control over the system. This app could be great if it had an audible alert, but it doesn’t.
Best battery app I've seen
I've tried a few battery apps. I prefer this one for its interface. The battery information is in a drop down menu from the menu bar (as opposed to a new window like in some other apps). One can also set the menubar's display settings to state percentage of battery left, or time left on battery. I would appreciate an update that enables one to remove the icon, and just display the time left / percentage charged.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
