       systemd-ac-power - Report whether we are connected to an external
       power source

SYNOPSIS         top

       systemd-ac-power [OPTIONS...]

DESCRIPTION         top

       systemd-ac-power may be used to check whether the system is
       running on AC power or not. By default it will simply return
       success (if we can detect that we are running on AC power) or
       failure, with no output. This can be useful for example to debug
       ConditionACPower= (see systemd.unit(5)).

OPTIONS         top

       The following options are understood:

       -v, --verbose
           Show result as text instead of just returning success or

           Added in version 253.

           Instead of showing AC power state, show low battery state. In
           this case will return zero if all batteries are currently
           discharging and below 5% of maximum charge. Returns non-zero

           Added in version 254.

       -h, --help
           Print a short help text and exit.

           Print a short version string and exit.

EXIT STATUS         top

       On success (running on AC power), 0 is returned, a non-zero
       failure code otherwise.
