Battery information inside terminal

If you want to know your battery details in terminal use upower and create an alias to it. Helpful if you are using any window manager without proper GUI.

To view battery details using upower

upower -i /org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/battery_BAT0

Grep to view only the required details

upower -i /org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/battery_BAT0 | grep -E "state|time|per"

Create an alias

alias bat='upower -i /org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/battery_BAT0 | grep -E "state|time|per"'

Add alias to ~/.bashrc file and make it permemanent.
