The first output is total time on battery from last restart, not total
time remaining. The second output is always 0, the script outputs a 0
just in case the "noo" option was missed. The third output will be the
current up time when I get it fixed. The forth output is the device name.
I don't think I want the gauge option, I want to count how many seconds
on battery from the last power failure, not from last restart.
Hopefully they're not the same.
I have tried the absolute option but that got me to same place, all
zeros in my log file.
