Pbbuttonsd has an option you might like (quoting pbbutonsd.conf(5)):
batlog = battery log mode (default: none)
Setting this option to one of the following values activates some
sort of battery data logging.
none: disable battery data logging
cycle: Pbbuttonsd counts the battery cycles so that it would be pos-
sible to estimate batteries lifetime. Usually Li-Ion batter-
ies allow 500 charge/discharge cycles.
log: Pbbuttonsd writes detailed battery data like current charge,
voltage, time remaining, etc. on a regularly time basis to a
log file. Also charge/discharge cycles will be counted and
displayed. Each charge/discharge cycle gets its own battery
log file. This data should allow investigation of a battery
ageing. This option includes the cycle option.
