Right now you can type "pt-status" in a console window, but there is no continuous battery status display while you are on the desktop.
I have therefore created a little program to display the pi-top battery status on the desktop. It displays a small icon on the task bar.
To download, use the browser and navigate to github.com
Then search in github for pi-top-battery-status
Installation instructions are there.
Questions and suggestions for improvement are most welcome.
Your batteryLog.txt looks ok. I believe your battery is now in good shape :-)
Enjoy working with your pi-top!
By the way, there is invisible trash can icon at the right side of each message you posted yourself. You can use it to delete a post which really went wrong. What a wonderful user interface!
i have installed this program and it works great but i need to uninstall it so i can fix the task bar.
There is a new version of the pi-top-battery-status program available at github.com/rricharz/pi-top-battery-status
It solves a problem causing it not to shut down the pi-top at very low battery capacity levels under certain circumstances. You can find an easy procedure how to upgrade your version if you scroll towards the bottom of the page. Sorry for the inconvenience. Please keep reporting any bugs or problems you have with the program.
The new desktop PIXEL has been released for Raspbian Jessie (not for pi-topOS), see raspberrypi.org/blog/introducing-pixel/
Upgrade instructions to PIXEL are in that blog.
The newest version 1.4 of the pi-top-battery-status is fully compatible with PIXEL, but needs to be reinstalled after upgrading to PIXEL. Instructions for upgrading of the pi-top-battery status are at github.com/rricharz/pi-top-battery-status
Scroll towards the bottom and look at the link found in the section "What to do if you have problems with your battery".
Suggestions for improvements of this procedure are most welcome.
