Laptop/battery monitoring software - free?

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Southern Kiwi, Apr 22, 2006.

  1. Hi,

    Compaq Presario V2000, XP Home, all updates etc.

    XP only reports the amount of battery left as a percentage, how can I get XP
    to show it as time left ?
    (I'm sure I've had it in the past under different windoze systems....)

    The tool tip when mousing over the battery icon tells you how long you have
    left. I also use http://www.pbus-167.com/chc.htm Notebook Hardware Control
