Here's the output:

Looks like a typo. If I replace 'battery_devices' with 'power_battery_devices' it seems to work.

It would be nice if it tried to select the battery that it displays information for based on the one that is currently discharging. Of course, the ideal scenario would be to display information about both batteries, like the default battery status indicator that ships with Lucid :)
