I also found this kind of annoying.  And as far as I can tell, APM doesn't show
everything.  This is why I wrote a plugin for GKrellM that, using PMUD, displays
battery status in a window.  Its almost as good as Batmon, but smaller.  I know
this works on Wallstreet, PDQ, and Lombard, and have untested code for other
systems.  If you already used GKrellM, this is something to try.  And I still
need testers for systems I don't have access to.

Are there any other PMU-savvy monitors out there?
