Keep your laptop battery healthy with batman!

About

batman is a command-line application for monitoring your battery charging status.

Usage

Use the command batman start min max to start monitoring. (Make it part of the startup applications of your OS for convenience)

When your laptop battery is discharging and reaches min, batman will warn you to plug in the battery charger. When your laptop is charging and reaches max, batman will warn you to stop charging.

In this way, batman helps you save battery charging cycles, thus prolonging battery life.

Sensible values for min and max are, for instance, 20 and 90.

Use the command batman stop to stop the program.

Installation

Build batman from source with go build, e.g.: go build -o batman main.go, defining your OS and architecture in environment variables GOOS and GOARCH.

For more details and inspiration, see the Bash script build in this repo.
