My research says this is where Linux stores the battery state.
Fully charged on AC:
present: yes
capacity state: ok
charging state: charged
present rate: 1 mA
remaining capacity: 7800 mAh
present voltage: 12513 mV

On Battery:
present: yes
capacity state: ok
charging state: discharging
present rate: 371 mA
remaining capacity: 6667 mAh
present voltage: 12388 mV

Back on AC, charging:
present: yes
capacity state: ok
charging state: charging
present rate: 1849 mA
remaining capacity: 6149 mAh
present voltage: 12731 mV

I have also seen the present rate display 'unknown', but that shouldn't affect the needs of the mprime program.

I hope that helps,
Traveller
