     acpibat - ACPI control method battery

     acpibat* at acpi?

     The acpibat driver supports the ACPI Control Method Battery interface
     between the battery and the host.	Information about the battery, such as
     capacity, recharge rate, voltage, and serial number, is available through
     this driver.  Battery status is updated through an event triggered when a
     battery changes state (such as starting to charge) and, as a failsafe if
     the system does not support passing such events, every 10 seconds.
     Battery status can be monitored using sysctl(8) or sensorsd(8).

     The acpibat driver first appeared in OpenBSD 3.8.

     The acpibat driver was written by Marco Peereboom <>.

     Some systems do not propagate battery insertion up to the driver.

     Smart Battery Specification-based batteries are not supported.
