Battery Overview


Battery Overview shows all of your Apple devices battery states in a single app. It is hosted in the menu bar to consume as less space as possible. In the menu bar Battery Overview displays only the lowest of all battery states in percent. Of course, in a small and space preserving way. By clicking on the icon in the status bar you get the information of all currently connected devices at a glance.

In the menu Battery Overview draws a battery icon in front of a device which is running from battery. Devices which are currently charged while connected have a power plug in front.

Battery Overview also informs you, if any of the devices reaches 10% or less of remaining battery capacity. For this notification the macOS notification service is used.

Of course, Battery Overview also contains the battery information from your MacBook's built-in battery.
