tpacpi-bat 3.1 ThinkPad battery charge controller

Tpacpi-bat is a command-line interface to control battery charging on Lenovo ThinkPad models released after 2011, starting with the xx20 series. It can query and set the thresholds at which one or both batteries will start and stop charging, inhibit charging batteries for a set period of time, or force them to discharge when they otherwise would not.

This tool merely exposes ACPI calls provided by the acpi_call Linux kernel module provided by the acpi-call-linux-module package, which must be installed and loaded separately. Only the original vendor firmware is supported.
