"ioreg -w0 -l | grep Capacity" in terminal does the same.

@KAYHH:

This is the output of ioreg -l -w0 on Intel:

cassiopeia:~ delphine$ ioreg -l -w0 | grep Capacity
| | "CurrentCapacity" = 5474
| | "LegacyBatteryInfo" = {"Capacity"=5474,"Amperage"=143,"Cycle C
ount"=7,"Current"=5474,"Voltage"=12609,"Flags"=7}
| | "MaxCapacity" = 5474
| | "DesignCapacity" = 5500

And this is the output on PPC (yeah, it's different):

maia:~ delphine$ ioreg -l -w0 | grep Capacity
| | | "IOBatteryInfo" = ({"Capacity"=3556,"Amperage"=1392,"Cycle Count"=10
2,"Current"=2808,"Voltage"=12426,"Flags"=838860807,"AbsoluteMaxCapacity"=4400})
| | | | "IOBatteryInfo" = ({"Capacity"=3556,"Amperage"=1392,"Cycle C
ount"=102,"Current"=2808,"Voltage"=12426,"Flags"=838860807,"AbsoluteMaxCapacity"
=4400})

If you're comfortable with that, and you can easily handle the different formats, you won't probably ever need batterystat.
