I noticed in your bug report was for Mac so till that enhancement gets
implemented you could use this.
put shell ("pmset -g batt") into tPowerStatus
put matchtext(tPowerStatus, "'([^']*)",tPowerSource) into tSuccess
Not sure how to do this for other platforms.
I wonder if this could be something that could be made into a widget once
they are ready?
