batmon is an interactive viewer, similar to top, htop and other *top utilities, but about the batteries installed in your notebook.

It was forked of https://github.com/svartalf/rust-battop.



  • Cross-platform (Linux, MacOS, FreeBSD and DragonflyBSD are supported and Windows is on the way)
  • Supports multiple batteries in case your notebook have them
  • It is free
  • Usually it just works!

batmon is backed by a Rust crate battery which provides unified cross-platform information about system batteries. Check it out, if you want to gather the same information for your application!
