Taking reasonable precautions to obtain the best performance from your laptop's battery is really a wise decision to prolong its life. BatteryCare is a simple but very useful application that enables you to take constant care of your laptop's battery in a simple way.

Once installed, the program will be available from the system tray icon. From there, it will monitor the status of your battery all the time.

In the main program window, you will be able to see basic information, as well as detailed data about the status of your battery. You can even know the temperature of your CPU.

Furthermore, the program is well-suited to "power plans" that come configured on your laptop. And it is even possible to activate any "power plan" automatically when your laptop is connected to the switch, or when it is running only on battery power.

However, undoubtedly, one of the best features of this program is that it will count the discharge cycles until a predetermined number (default is 30). Once your laptop has reached that number, the program will notify you that it's time to make a total discharge, and in this way, keep the battery gauge totally calibrated. As a reference, you can get more information about this topic iat the author's website.
