    I know that a Mac Forums isn't the best place to ask a PC/Vista-based question, but I can't quite bring myself to register on a PC forum lol :p Besides, this is the most active place I know of - or that I visit :cool:

    Anyhow, my missus has a PC laptop where the battery is kind of dieing - I was wondering if there is a freeware app the equivalent of coconutBattery that will tell me the capacity remaining of the battery/charge cycles etc?

    Cheers

    Try HWMonitor
    Doesn't give you the number of charge cycles, but does give you capacity information.

    Closest you can get is BatteryCare.

    Hope this helps.

    Most manufacturers have their own utility (the Thinkpads have a very detailed one, allowing you to set charge parameters, etc. )
