Balert 1.1.8

A speaking battery's charge level

Balert is for all the lazy people (like me :P ) who often miss desktop notifications. Balert will say it clear and loud whenever your battery status goes below a default critical level or the level decided by you!

Build Status Version Downloads Python


Click above for demo


Build from source

git clone
cd balert
python install

Using pip

pip install Balert

After installation is done successfully, run any combinations of below command in your terminal once for initial setup and then we are done! If you want to use the default setup then just run balert in terminal.

Default config:

language: English
rate    : 150
charge  : 20 (in percentage)
msg     : ""
vol     : 1.0


Set language

To set the language eg. hindi, english , tamil. Default one is english

balert -l hindi

Set rate of speaking

balert -r 100

Set your custom alert message

balert -m "Delta is the state of mind"

Set custom charge level.

If the battery level is below this critical level then only it will give a voice alert

balert -c 30

View the set configuration

balert -s


balert -m "Hey,Lazy dog " -c 25

When you run the above code, you’ve set “Hey,Lazy dog” as your custom message and 25 as your critical charge level.


Have an idea to make it better? Go ahead! I will be happy to see a pull request from you! :)
