Release!!! Beta 2 0.2.159

We are now waiting on a UI redesign and we will be naming battery life 1.0
This update comes with a few minor fixes and a new update site. Older versions of battery life will not automatically update to this version. If you have an older version you will need to download the setup file and reinstall Battery Life.

Features being built...

Basing remaining time on average time between % remain increments and on average CPU usage as well as other hardware. I will build it so that it will auto-calibrate through the first few discharges and will provide a label that tells you how accurate it thinks it is as it is calibrating.
