Battery Monitor for Ubuntu 16.04 LTSWhat makes Battery Monitor different from a whole host of similar apps is its clever integration with Ubuntu notifications. It will notify user about charging, discharging, not charging and critically low battery states. Installation is pretty straight forward. Fire up your Terminal and do as following.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:maateen/battery-monitor -y sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install battery-monitor -y
After installation, there are two ways to start Battery Monitor immediately. Either run battery-monitor in your Terminal itself OR hit ALT + F2 and run battery-monitor. I prefer the later. A few more screenshots.
