    It's a small menu bar app that let's you save battery when you're running low by dimming the screen, monitoring expensive apps, etc. It's free.

    Hasn't been updated in a few months, but used to use it to extend battery when I was traveling. Lately, I've just been setting the power saving settings aggressively and then using Amphetamine when I need to keep it from sleeping.
