    • Position should keep at bottom right side regardless what resolution of display

      When the screen resolution changes from small to big one, the battery bar position some times get to the middle of the taskbar, and I can't manually move it. It should keep at bottom right which is just near to system tray.

        • some mistake in transaction in Korean.

          The Information windows have mistakes in transaction to the Korean. I suggest correct language. The first line is 충전률 98.5%. And the 3rd line is 충전양.

            • Replace the confusing color scheme with a charge/discharge symbol like in cell phones

              At present, mine shows blue when charging, green when discharging and black when fully charged. Why counter-intuitive green when discharging ? A simple plug/electric symbol during charging and absence of it during discharging is easier to understand.

              • stop shocking me with the "battery fully charged" RED icon

                Every time the "Battery fully charged" pops up, I survive jet another shock!

                The battery icon looks empty (and red) rather than full (and green).

                I can take it any more! No more! AAAAaaaaaa!!!

                :)

                  I have spent time trying to make a battery icon that looked full, but I’m not a graphic artist and I’ve been unsuccessful. If you can suggest a way to get decent critical, low, and full battery icons I’m open to suggestions! I do want this fixed before the stable release.

                  BTW, you can disable the Fully Charged notification in the Preferences window. It should be turned off by default.

                  • Recordatorio de carga/descarga

                    Estoy usando el programa BatteryBar Pro y me parece una excelente opción para el mantenimiento de las baterías, tengo una idea que me parece que seria muy útil que se le agregara al programa, de trata de lo siguiente:

                    Un recordatorio del estado actual del equipo (Carga/Descarga), esto seria útil en la siguiente situación; cuanto tenemos la necesidad de movernos a otra ubicación y al llegar debemos de encender nuestros equipos BatteryBar Pro debería de indicarnos si el estado anterior al apagado del equipo era CARGANDO o DESCARGANDO para que así podamos continuarlo haciendo.

                    De manera personal me ha pasado…

                    • possibility to pin batteryBar to taskbar

                      Older version, i think 3.4.0, by definition was located on the taskbar. In new version you removed this feature.
                      Now the batterybar(3.5.0) always disappears(despite that checkbox "always on top" is enabled") when user clicking on the browser or on taskbar. This issue really uncomfortable.
                      I suggest, please make it possible to pin batterybar to taskbar,i think it really comfortable because it always on top no matter what you doing on the computer you always seeing level of your battery.

                      • I made a fix for ThinkBar Green skin in vertical taskbar.

                        I arranged margin values and managed to fix wrong height issue of ThinkBar Green skin in vertical taskbar under win7.
                        It can be downloaded at:

                        http://www.lares.dti.ne.jp/~hamano/TEMP/theme-green-vertical.zip

                        When unzipped, you'll find an .xml file.
                        Place the file in your BatteryBar skin folder, such as;

                        C:\Program Files\BatteryBar\Themes\ThinkBar

                        Then, select the skin from right click menu on BatteryBar,

                        "Preferences..." -> "Display" -> "Theme" dropdown, "ThinkBar - Green Vertical".

                        I hope this will help you.

                        Thanks!

                        • can't activate pro version

                          When I click on "Update to Pro version" entire window closes, so I can't enter activation data.
                          BatteryBar version 3.5, build 4, using polish translation, but it fails also in english.

                          I'd love to provide you with more details if needed.

                              I suggest some way to access the settings and a help function that shows how to get the floating icon back into the taskbar (dunno the correct english term - what i mean is: next to all the other small icons on the bottom of my screen). without haven to uninstall and reinstall without the "floating" option.

                              • fix positioning issue while switch between external monitor and laptop screen

                                I am running BatteryBar on a laptop, which constantly switch between the laptop display and external Full HD monitor. The position on the batterybar is also in the center of taskbar after switch from laptop to external monitor (supposed to be on the right side of taskbar).

                                I am using Windows 8.1.

                                • Battery bar and menu font cut off when I use 2-bytes(unicode) font.

                                  Hello. I'm Korean.
                                  I usually use your Batterybar for my laptop.

                                  When I use Korean font, battery percent rate and some of menu fonts are changed very misteriously.

                                  - Use same size, but it's bigger than English font.
                                  - Cut off some texts, so I must change the language when I select menu.
                                  - Can not use some custom Korean fonts to Batterybar.

                                  Please check and update the Batterybar.
                                  Thanks.

                                      • Make the bar height/width settable

                                        The floating toolbar has settable height and width (although lock size/position would be welcomed). Please enable this featre even for the bar locked on taskbar.
                                        This thing would be excellent mainly for verical taskbars…

                                          It would be nice to have extra info, rmclock like, about Voltage, manufacturer, part nr., date of manufacturing etc..
