Battery Monitor is a battery monitor for laptops.
Current Version: 0.2
- Released: Nov 5, 2005
- Licensed: GPL 2
It displays the current status of the battery (charge/discharge and energy level) as well as some information about the general health of the cell.
Due to the way Battery Monitor is implemented it currently works only on linux 2.6 kernels with ACPI and that too reliably only on some acpi/bios combination (it is being worked on: the /proc file system is very inconsistent.)
A user-contributed patch to make it work on FreeBSD has been merged in.
