View Full Version : [all variants] Make a simple custom battery indicator

August 16th, 2009, 08:49 PM

Some time back I rebuilt my laptop battery pack and replaced the bad cells with some fresh and new ones. Problem is that I got cells wich are 2500mAh and the original cells were 2200mAh so now the battery indicator is way wrong in XP and in *buntu it shows 0% charge but I can use the laptop on battery power for approx. 1h 20m.

Is there an ease way to make like a script that keeps track of how long the charger has been plugged in, when it stops charging and how long the battery runs without charger...well you get the point... and that it then uses this info to display an estimated time before battery runs out?

Thank you
