Acpitool is a tiny package that can display battery status, life, etc. This is only needed if you run a window manager that doesn't include the ability to show battery life.

First install it:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install acpitool

To show some basic battery stats simply run:

To show thermal information
acpi -t

Same as above but in Farenheit
acpi -tf

Same as above but in Kelvin
acpi -tk

Show A/C Connection Status
acpi -a

Show cooling device info
acpi -c

Show everything
acpi -V
