si integra molto bene nella variabile PS1 oppure direttamente come comando..

anche questo è scaricabile da qua

# This is a script I wrote so that I could have a sort of battery monitor at
# the command line, since that is where I live most of the time. Also, I run
# fluxbox because it’s light weight with no eye candy. I tried things like
# torsmo and gkrellm for monitoring the battery, but they defeated the purpose
# of using fluxbox.
# This script is meant for usage in your $PS1 variable. I added colors to this
# so that (a) the battery level would stand out and (b) so that you can quickly
# know the state of the battery level. When the laptop is on AC power, then no
# matter what the level of your battery, it will display in cyan. Once you are
# on battery power, the display will be either green, yellow, or red, depending
# on the remaining charge left in the battery. Simply add this part somewhere
# in your $PS1:
#    \[\$(path/to/\]
# Here is what my $PS1 looks like in my .profile just as an example:
#    export PS1=”\[\$(/usr/local/bin/\]\W \\$ ”
# Of course you can change the colors and/or alert levels to whatever you like.
# That’s it. Enjoy it or hate it
