Snow Leopard keeps MacBook users abreat of battery issues

Sat, Jun 20, 2009


The most recent build of Snow Leopard coming out of the WWDC gives MacBook users a warning that their battery might be on the fritz, according to a recent report from AppleInsider.

When the battery has been used often enough that it ‘s losing capacity, the icon is overlaid with an exclamation mark warning and the battery condition changes to “poor” — both signs that the pack is due to be replaced. While not every condition is known, Snow Leopard presumably reports varying degrees of battery status when the pack has only been moderately used or is like new.

Having used a MacBook whose battery recently died seemingly out of the blue, a heads up warning from Snow Leopard that a battery is about to kick the bucket is welcome news.
