Battery Mode

Battery Mode replaces Windows default battery indicator to a more powerful and useful one. It provides backlight control, easy power scheme selection, detailed battery information and a lot of handy features for customization. Works on Windows XP / Windows Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 / Windows 10.

Advanced Power Scheme Selection

  • Battery Mode allows you to change current power scheme right from the battery popup window.
  • Unlike the standard popup in Windows 7-8.1, Battery Mode provides a full list of power schemes available on your system.
  • You can setup a schedule to change power scheme automatically.

Comfortable Backlight Control

  • You can use Battery Mode to control backlight on both internal and external monitors.
  • Note: External monitors should support I2C interface and DDC/CI standard to work.
  • Check the «Fixed screen brightness» option to prevent backlight level from changing when attaching power supply or changing power scheme.
  • Brightness icon near backlight slider allows you to enable or disable «Adaptive brightness» (if your device support it).

Hotkeys for Power Users

  • Battery Mode provides a customizable hotkey to change a power scheme without opening it's window.
  • You can use NextScheme.exe utility to switch power scheme or control backlight in you scripts.
  • Type NextScheme*.exe -? in command prompt to get help - NextScheme Documentation.
