How Long I Have Used My Battery

Is there an application that shows how long I have used my battery in my laptop on a single charge?

Maybe this will help you out fairly good program: BatteryCare - CNET Download.com

That didn't have the usage time on battery (how much I have used the laptop on battery, not the estimated usage time) Also, the CNET installer didn't download the file correctly.
Just a helpful hint: I would try to use other sites over CNET's Download.com. The installer has those toolbars and stuff where you have to make sure you click decline twice (for two different programs) and then click on Custom Install and uncheck more stuff.
Thanks for the suggestion, though.

Oh sorry though you meant to just look at your battery. It's something I never really look at tbh. I had a quick search but no luck sorry

When you first run BatteryBar, you won't see it. You'll need to configure your Taskbar to display it. Right-click the Taskbar, select Toolbars, and then select Taskbar. When you do that, BatteryBar will appear on your Taskbar.

It doesn't show the discharge rate (in hours and minutes) It shows it in mW.
