The menu bar icon is vertically stretched when shown on a secondary display

This is a macOS 11 bug. I have tried to work around this issue, but it’s out of my control.

Why does the menu bar icon show when I unplug the power adapter?

The system needs some time to accurately calculate the time remaining estimate.

Can it show “apps using significant energy” like the built-in battery indicator?

It can unfortunately not show this because of restrictions (sandboxing) imposed on apps in the App Store. However, you could change the menu bar item type to text instead of icon and use this app in combination with the system battery indicator.

Where can I find the changelog?

Go here and click “Version History”.

Can you localize the app into my language?

I don’t have any immediate plans to localize the app.
