Feisty feature of the day #29 - Battery stats

The way that GNOME Power Manager handles battery charge statistics seems to change with every release. See Richard Hughes' blog for the latest developments on that front (he's the developer).

I can't quite remember how battery stats were done in Edgy, but I think they've been changed and simplified for Feisty, so there's not quite as much crazy power information for you to sit and stare at. Just right-click the GNOME Power Manager icon in the notification area and click Power History.

If you've ever read this blog before, you'll know that I like graphs. Seriously, this is like Christmas to me.
