coconutBattery isn't just a tool which shows you only the current charge of your battery - it also shows you the current maximum capacity of it in relation to the original capacity your battery had as it left the factory.

You also get information about the battery-loadcycles (how often did you fully load your battery), the current charger (coconutBattery even warns you if you plugged in a wrong charger for your Notebook) and last but not least information about the age of your Mac.

coconutBattery gives you all these information just in time because of it's live-feedback interface!

Of course you are able to save the current maximum capacity of your battery - with just one click! coconutBattery uses Apple's new and really powerful technology named "CoreData" to realize this comfortable saving option.

Istat pro is quite the memory hog....

I wish there was an export-function so I cut chart the battery life in another application.

App crashes if battery is not connected (or if your MacBook Pro thinks the battery is disconnected).

Nice app! Now all it needs is a "fix broken battery" button so I won't have to buy a new one every year :-)

I prefer iStat Pro.

Does the job just as well.

Works fine for me. I'll be able to monitor how the battery's capacity changes.

Tried this recently. Not very useful, or accurate for that matter. All it did for me was give me an idea of the percentage of the original charge that my battery will charge to. That seemed fairly accurate, but not good enough to make me want to keep it.

Is unable to correctly identify wether the laptop is charging or the adapter plugged in (always says "NO").

updated as such, dvdw

I suggest using the tag "monitor" instead of "monitoring"
