Conky Battery weirdness

Posting this here in case anyone else runs into this strangeness. I think it's pretty common knowledge at this point that if you aren't getting a reading on your battery in Conky that you need to open up your Conky.config and change Batt0 to Batt1. But what do you do if you still aren't getting a reading? You look in /sys/class/powersupply and see what the system calls it, and change it accordingly.

For example, my old Panasonic Toughbook actually labels it BATA instead of BAT1. Anyway, I hope this helps someone else, as I didn't see this documented anywhere that's easy to find.

"A graphic representation of data abstracted from the banks of every computer in the human system. Unthinkable complexity. Lines of light ranged in the nonspace of the mind, clusters and constellations of data. Like city lights, receding."
