Frequently Asked Questions

Does YaBattery launch at login?
Yes! You can enable YaBattery to launch at login by clicking on the status bar item and select "Launch at login".
YaBattery only shows "--:--", what does this mean?
From time to time the battery takes some time to calculate the remaining time, either to empty or to fully charged. This does also happen with Apple's built in battery information. Just wait some time and the value will show up.
What do the colors mean?
Well, green stands for charging. As soon as you remove the power cord the color switches to orange for discharging. When the battery level is under 25% it is displayed as red.

Please ensure that YaBattery is installed under /Applications. Otherwise, the launch at login features does not work.
