DSBBatmon is a Qt battery monitor for FreeBSD®. It displays the battery's current status, capacity, and remaining time when you move the mouse cursor over its tray icon. DSBBatmon can automatically shut down or suspend your system when the battery's capacity falls short of a certain percental value.
