Whys is this necessay? All the related information required is already
present in my system.
I already have two power_supply instances:
* /sys/class/power_supply/AC0/ (provided by module "ac"), contains
property "online" which is correctly updated to 1 when AC is plugged
and 0 when AC is unplugged.
* /sys/class/power_supply/BAT0/ (provided by module "battery"),
contains property "status" which is correctly updated to "Charging"
when AC is plugged and "Discharging" when AC is unplugged.
