Claim of US Patent No. 10,923,931

1. An information handling system comprising:a motion sensor to detect a predefined motion pattern, and to provide a trigger signal as a battery charge request in response to predefined motion pattern being detected;
an embedded controller to communicate with the motion sensor, the embedded controller to receive the trigger signal from the motion sensor, to request a relative state of charge of a battery in response to the trigger signal, to receive the relative state of charge of the battery, and to provide a relative state of charge indication signal;
a battery charge indicator to communicate with the embedded controller, the battery charge indicator to receive the relative state of charge indication signal, and to output an indication of the relative state of charge of the battery based on relative state of charge indication signal; and
a battery management unit to communicate with the embedded controller, the battery management unit to receive the request for the relative state of charge of the battery from the embedded controller, to read the relative state of charge of the battery, and to provide the relative state of charge of the battery to the embedded controller.
