Linux console brings acpi to us to check the status our Laptop battery, right from the command line.
First of all install the acpi package
sudo apt-get install acpi
To check the state of the charge of battery
The output could be something like this.
Battery 1: discharging, 44%, 00:18:48 remaining
To check the battery temperature
And the output could be
Battery 1: discharging, 37%, 00:15:59 remaining Thermal 1: ok, 49.0 degrees C
if you need it in Farenheit
acpi -t -f
To check the AC power status
The output could be:
Battery 1: discharging, 30%, 00:13:31 remaining AC Adapter 1: off-line
You can check all the status together
The output will be:
Battery 1: discharging, 27%, 00:11:29 remaining Thermal 1: ok, 50.0 degrees C AC Adapter 1: off-line
