Question Battery Power Meter for laptop?

Hi all,
I am running off my battery on my laptop and was wondering if there was a power meter somewhere in RH that I didn't know about... I bet there is one, I bet it is right under my nose, that's why I'm looking everywhere else...
Thanks in advance for the help

I know there is one within kde. You can go under kcontrol and activate it in the power management setup.

You also have to have the APM modules.
