Battery monitor show the remaining capacity of laptop battery, time remaining and AC status. It can be confugured to play sound when laptop goes to AC power or battery and low battery alarm. This plugin supports skins.

If Battery Monitor does not appear in the list of plugins then download it again from same link. Old installation was invalid. The size of valid tlbatmon.exe is 419394 bytes.

Wooo, even with skin and popup-hint... it looks very nice!

If the power is plugged in, the popup says:
Estimated time on battery: 1193046:28

And this huge value is also displayed for 5 seconds in the plugin itself, when the power is disconnected. After 5 seconds it shows a more reasonable time... Maybe you should suppress the 'remaining time' value until it's lower than 1000 hours, or just until the next update after a status change?

And it would be great if it was possible to define the 'battery warning' and 'low battery' thresholds for the sounds... For example, my battery is empty at 50%... a warning at 10% would simply be useless...

<span style='font-size:8pt;line-height:100%'>PS. Why does the installation always say it needs to reboot while this is not the case... I had even killed explorer.exe, so no DLL's were in use, and in fact it works fine without the reboot...</span>
