there is this nifty tool called NHC (Notebook Hardware Control) for 32 bit notebooks which also shows the current power consumption.

Now I have a 64 bit laptop where NHC doesn't work. Is there any way to see the current wattage without using a meter on the power adapter's plug?

This seems to run on Win7 x64. I didn't find anything contrary to that. I have yet to test it though.

ThinkPads have this as standard.

You can give Notebook Battery Info a try.

No workie. I had to go to batteryinfo.x10hosting.com/html to download first of all... The .co.cc which just has a frame to the same folder gives me a forbidden when trying to download, strangely. Installation says: 64bit OS detected, cannot be installed on a 64 bit os. – sinni800 Sep 21 '10 at 12:40
    
@sinni800: Oh, no x64 version? That sucks. – paradroid Sep 21 '10 at 12:47
