Do not install the Cyberpower Powerpanel app on a laptop

It removes the icon for battery power that is part of the operating system, and installs it's own icon which show UPS charge status. This is probably a good thing for a desktop, but on a laptop, it's high weirdness. If you unplug your laptop from AC power, the icon always shows "fully charged". If you go to the energy saver control panel, it will show you the battery charge, but this isn't convenient. I decided to delete the app. That is all.

It IS kinda cool for a desktop, I imagine it never occurred them that people would install it on a laptop

So it removed the existing icon and didn’t just crowd it out? That’s annoying!

Yes, it totally removes the system icon which show a battery on its side, and replaces that with a battery standing up.

I have both APC and Cyberpower UPS.

If I plug in into my old PowerBook G4, OS 10.5 shows me both internal battery and UPS. I plug into a more recent Mac, it shows me an average of the total charge in the internal batter and UPS. Annoying.

If I plug into a Mini for example, then yes I can see the charge in UPS as expected.

All this with the default OS X or macOS, I never install their utilities.
