## About

E-AcpiPower is a small Enlightenment epplet which will show you how much
power is left in your batteries and when they will be empty.

## History

After I got my notebook I installed E-Power which uses the apm-functions.
But I had to discover that the information is not to be taken seriously on my
computer. The numbers jumped from 10 to 200 percent without any system.

This is why I tried out the new acpi-functions. They seemed to be pretty good
and reliable. Therefore I modified E-Power to cope with acpi information.

## Usage

The battery symbol gives you a quick check on your current amount of power. The
first text-line tells you how much power is still available with respect to
the last maximum charge. The bottom-line provides information on how long it
will last till the battery is empty based on the current power consumption
which is given right behind it in Ampere. While the computer is in "AC on-line"
state, you will get a rough ETA for the recharging process after some
minutes.

## Requirements

You'll need Enlightenment, of course, a working installation of the

Epplet-base and a kernel with acpi-support.
Note: You cannot have apm and acpi enabled at the same time. Acpi is available
if

`/proc/acpi/` exists, there you will need the subdirectories for
the battery and the ac-adapter for E-AcpiPower to work.
