One of the most essential thing which is considered while buying a laptop is its battery backup. And we all know that higher the battery backup, higher the price of the laptop (most cases). But the backup reduces with time, so to avoid this from happening you can use a free utility called Batterycare.
Batterycare is a software that is designed to get you the most out of your laptop battery. It helps in optimizing the performance of the battery. It monitors the battery’s discharge cycles and helps increasing it’s autonomy and improving its lifetime. The features it provide are enlisted here :-
