Is there a way to get an ACCURATE battery readout with Desktop Execution Widget?

I use this code for battery percentage
Code:
hal-device bme | awk -F"[. ]" '$5 == "is_charging" {chrg = $7}; $5 == "percentage" {perc = $7} END if (chrg == "false") {print perc "%"} else {print "Chrg"}'
But i am sure this is one of the default commands for the commands button.

don't be fooled by the "accurate" numbers. those are only approximations and probably don't help at all.

If you want a more accurate readings you really want to load the bq27x00_battery module to get it.

If you see this you are probably bored

Same happens to me, because I had two bq27x00_battery modules loaded...
So simply delete the unnecessary entry from /etc/modules and reboot.
Code:
leafpad /etc/modules
The bq27x00_battery module is loaded by default so no need for an extra entry in /etc/modules ;-)

# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.

# Parameters can be specified after the module name.

bq27x00_battery



What should I delete? and after delete, can I read the Temperature??
