Support multiple batteries
Out of the box the primary battery status will be displayed in the i3-bar. For some laptops that has multiple batteries e.g. ThinkPad, you want to have both batteries displayed. To do so, follow the steps:
- Stage your own i3 config file (tutorial), then open
~/.config/regolith/i3xrocks/configin your editor of choice.
- Find the line that pertains to the battery blocklet:
... # Battery indicator # # Displays total percentage charge left of specified battery. [battery3] interval=30 # instance=BAT0
- List all the battery instances running on your machine by running:
ls /sys/class/power_supply/ # AC BAT0 BAT1
- Update the staged config file to have a new blocklet as such:
... # Battery indicator # # Displays total percentage charge left of specified battery. [battery3] interval=30 instance=BAT0 [battery3] interval=30 instance=BAT1
