iBook battery charge level query command?

Message #1 - Posted 2003/09/26 - Peter Renzland

I'd like to be able to query the battery charge level, so that I can have get customized low battery warnings. Twice in the past few days the iBook (2-USB 500Mhz) has gone into forced sleep unexpectedly. Seems like the bottom half of the battery is only about 5%, but it would be good to actually be able to monitor this.

Thanks.
