You just need to download the BatteryMonitoring.zip file and extract it anywhere on your hard disk. This small program does not need any installation, so extract the contents of the zip file, double click BatteryMonitoring.exe to run it.
It will load into your system tray and start functioning, we would recommend to place this Battery Monitoring executable in your windows startup so that it automatically starts running when you start your laptop.

jsut one question..
don’t every laptop has already this function, why do we need to add more application..
I think Vista does give low battery warning, not an alarm, but this is a pretty useful utility
Btw does this tool show how much of our battery life is left and used out?
I am not talking about the charge but the life of the battery.
How do I get this to load into my system tray at startup, rather than a window on top of my desktop?
handy utlity, but the icon can look better.
Yeah, very nice and small program – too bad it doesn’t work with my Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo Si1520.
1. I can’t specify the critical or low battery level
2. there is no sound even if the battery is at 5 percent
I thought that after years of searching I have found a tool that is able to alert me of my dying battery – but I have to search on.
If ANYONE on this planet knows a working battery meter THAT GIVES A FRAKING SOUND ALERT for Vista – mail me and you’ll get the Nobel Price in the category “Fraking Annoying Problems” from me.
No battery alarm and no pop up on brand new Dell Windows Vista.
This battery monitoring icon does not sound on my system either. The icon is a little too large, and cannot be tweaked easily. So I’m still stuck with the problem, and can’t find an awful lot of help on internet.
Yahoo widgets has a tool called “Battery Monitor”. Its perfect, and beeps when system is on low batt, and even can be set to blink the battery icon in red, and give continuous beeps to to alert user!
if u know little bit of Visual Basic coding, u can create the application yourself. just google for the vb code to check battery status, and then to play a wav file… thats it.. u can make ur own good application !!!

Nice site really!
Found a simple battery alarm so that my Toshiba evetually gives me a warning: http://www.codeplex.com/BatteryAlarm There is a config file that can be customised and once you make sure this program starts up with Vista it works great.
As an alternative, you may want to look at BatteryBar. It’s a Windows toolbar that provides a lot more features, include low battery alerts. There is a Free and Pro version.
doesn’t work on my Acer Aspire either. very frustrating.
I’ve released a new version incase you want to check it out.
