Battery status script

Some weeks ago, my laptop suddenly turned off, because its battery was completely flat. To prevent this from happening again, I wrote a small script that notifies me, when a critical charge state is reached. Additionally it shuts the computer down before the battery does. ;-) Please note that this isn’t meant to be a general purpose solution, so feel free to adapt it to your own needs.
