    Just curious if one exists. I'm buying a new battery and want to test it out.

    Hi Akito!

    I am not sure with these, BUT if you mean software utility...

    What! The coolest Laptop Battery Monitor
    http://homepages.ihug.co.nz/~ashok/akwhat.html

    WHAT! displays the amount of battery life in minutes and as a percentage. Also displayed is the current time and icons of a battery (showing charge level) and a power plug if the battery is being charged. Visual clues are provided if the battery is low - characters change colour and the battery icon has a cross on it. Right-click will present a menu allowing you to turn on Clock Chiming, Laptop Suspend and lots of other functions.

    is a free replacement power gauge that monitors both laptop batteries and many UPS batteries

    BatteryTest

    The BatteryTest program is most useful with modern laptops which incorporate ‘smart’ batteries – i.e., batteries which are capable of fully reporting their state of charge.
