Discharge Rate Indicator

Welcome to the README of Discharge Rate Indicator for Ubuntu Unity desktop environment.

This application indicator resides in the Applicaton/Top bar and displays the instantaneous power usage a.k.a discharge rate of the battery every 3 seconds. There is a visual indicator too that averages the instantaneous values for 5 measurements.


dis-ra-dicator : discharge-rate-indicator
Has a dinosaury 🦖 vibe to it.....velociraptor, disradicator......maybe more of a Terminator vibe !
Or, as pointed out by Raghu
dis-radicator : discharge-eradicator
Which is also accurate as it keeps you aware of your discharge rate thereby helping you slow it down.
