I have been using Coconut Battery for some time now and I just installed Leopard. I am having a couple issues and just want to make sure its not my machine only.

First off, Coconut is saying that my battery has 5 cycles while it really has 38. System Profiler has the correct number as well as iStat Pro.

Secondly, it is saying that my battery is charging...but without the charger connected (oh how I wish) as seen here.




Are these just program bugs that need to be fixed or a larger problem?

yeah, I have the same problem. any alternate (free) apps?
iStat Pro or you can just look in your System Profiler (scroll down). All Coconut Battery is is a nice GUI for it anyways, that's why I'm not worried about it being wrong.

Yes in leopard nothing special just downloaded it
from islayer and works fine if you tell us how to post a pic i'll show you the stats oh and i keep it updated
with appfresh
shift+apple+4 then drag the mouse over to where you want to start capturing. Click and hold while you drag to the other corner of what you're capturing and release.. there should be a file called Picture 1 on your desktop.

You can just press shift+apple+3 to capture the whole screen.

CoconutBattery also stopped working for me when I upgraded to Leopard. As soon as I downgraded back to Tiger, CoconutBattery began to function properly again.
