FYI, I have a script

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---

if [ -S "/tmp/emacs`id -u`/server" ]; then
    emacsclient -n --eval '(battery)'
    echo "Cannot find emacs server socket";
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

that I always use it to get the battery info. I'm using a minimalism
window manager that doesn't have battery widget by default.
