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.
Why does launch at login not work?
Please ensure that YaBattery is installed under /Applications. Otherwise, the launch at login features does not work.
Can I try before I buy?
Yes! There is a special trail version to help you decide whether YaBattery does what you need.
macOS claims that the trail version is damaged, what can I do?
This is Gatekeeper macOS's system protector. All my trail apps are signed with an identifier developer signature. However, you need to allow such apps in your security preferences. See Apple's support document: HT202491.
I need troubleshooting or have an enhancement request, what to do?
Great, I'm always interested in feedback. In YaBattery use the Feedback / Issue reporting item in the menu or supply your request here. I try to get back to you as soon as possible.
