comment How can I get a notification using Notify-OSD when the charger is inserted/removed?
@Seth Thanks so much for looking into this. As it happens, my battery died on me a very quick death, so my query is a bit moot by now. But I'll keep this solution in mind for the future.

comment How to monitor battery condition and pop-up notification?
Found how to do this. I edited the script to add notify-send equivalents for those who prefer that, and to make the "loop" happen at 1sec intervals. Works nicely!

comment How to monitor battery condition and pop-up notification?
Thanks for this. It seems to be working, but one of the issues that I notice is that it takes a lot of processing power. I suspect this comes from the continuous case $CAPACITY in. Is there a way to do the check every 1sec or so?
