Is there a tool that can record one's battery life on a periodic or level basis? Preferably for UNIX-y systems. I want to keep a small report of the health of my devices. I think I can probably do some parsing of information from upower if it's installed.

Running upower -i /org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/battery_BAT1 on my laptop gives me the following:
