Low and critical battery levels (on which the applet changes its color) can be set.
It is a really simple dockapp, which shows the percent battery level and the current power state (battery or AC) in a clear and simple way. The background of the dockapp turns green, yellow or red on behalf of the battery level (respectively safe, low or critical).
