I'd like to see Battery Eater for MacOSX & if there's no plans in near future to publish version for macs I'd like to participate in your project to port your useful application I've been using for years on my windows laptops

Very glad to hear that. Thanks. For now there is no plans for MacOS. Maybe only if BatteryEater will not free.

Hi, I'm using the software to do a reader test on an acer W510. Is it normal that device still goes to standby? Will that invalidate the results? Energy plan ist "balanced".

Try to disable standby mode before start test.

Maybe you have only 1 battery installed in your laptop?

Gives error message when run in vista

Not tesed in Vista.

13.4.2013

Me

What are the units of the rate values generated in the Discharge.cvs file?

This value doesn't work on most batteries. So it can show broken values.

Thank you!

access violation at address 00461179 in modilu BEpro.exe read of address 00000358

Will there be Windows 8 support? I'm going to have to move our testing across to something else I think.

Yes it will.

31.10.2012

Jo

Same here: On Windows 8, it says "Failed to set data for 'Battery Eater '05'"

James

Hi, can't get it working on Windows 8, Any suggestions?

15.3.2012

dennis

Windows on ARM (Windows 8) recompile needed!

There is no possible ways to do this. Sorry

denniz

Battery eater needs a 10%, 30% and 50% workload task too, to relate energy saving technology (lower clocks, disabled cores) on processors vs. battery life extension.

30.8.2011

You need to sterilize input on this ToDo form. Maybe a little empty field check will be good,

Native version for w7 x64 version, really useful program.

15.6.2011

battery eater needs an online db, it would need to be curated/moderated to be useful.

15.5.2011

Can you make BE work for desktops to stress the video card? P.S. I love BE! I have been using it for almost 2 years now.

You can start BE at any computer you have just by pressing SHIFT+F3.

6.1.2011

truth

Program is incompatible with modern os. EG Windows 7 64 bit.

BE compatible only with 32bit OS.

2011, no support for win 7? epic fail... Your software don't have START button and glitch on modern OS...

Create a database in your website with results of battery eater by model, battery cells number and time elapsed until shutdown. It would be great ! Thanks a lot for your work !

It was planned for Battery Eater 3. Thanks to you!

Seems to have issues with Windows 7. Gauge appears behind the taskbar and is not visible. Also, get an error saying "Failed to set data in Battery Eater 05"

Ok, BE 2.xx don't tested with Vista or 7. So can't say anything. I think they won't be optimized for Vista/7. Wait until BE3 released.

4.2.2010

MetZebs

I get "Unable to find suitable pixel format" when i start the test, after that's find black screen and nothing happen

There is something wrong with Graphic's driver. Try to update GPU's drivers.

Much same as alain. BE 2.7. Problems : 1 - repeated "access violation" messages when doing the charge test. 2 - Gauge most of the time under Task Bar even if Task Bar is set to be under application windows. 3.Failed to set data for battery eater 05 error shows after the test begins. Thanks

4.5.2009

Alain

Configuration: AspireOne A150B - XP home SP3 - BE 2.7. Problems : 1 - repeated "access violation" messages when doing the charge test. 2 - Gauge most of the time under Task Bar even if Task Bar is set to be under application windows. Minor bugs : 1- "Create battery charging graph" disappears when selecting any test except classic test, altough the button is still operating. 2 - Special french characters do not display correctly on the "elapsedtime" field. Wish : a link in the langage.ini file to the help file so translation of help will be possible by volunteers... Anyway, a useful tool ! Thank you.

While running the battery charge step of the test I repeatedly got the error "Access violation at adress 004676A9 in module "BEPro.exe" Read of adress 000002F4". The program did not crash though, and I was able to complete the test. The message reappeared about every 30 seconds. I was using Battery Eater Pro V 2.60 on a new Compaq laptop. The laptop was running Windows XP Pro SP2 with all the latest updates. The processor is AMD Turion 64 X2. 2GB of RAM, nVidia 6150go graphics card. I will be happy to provide any additional info.
