FYI, I use the following on my Linux laptops for my prompt config:

  local battery="$(acpi -b)"
  [[ $battery == *Discharging* ]] &&
    psvar[2]="[${${battery#*Discharging, }%\%,*}%]"

  unset _trapchld_called
# ...
  [[ -n $_trapchld_called ]] && updprompt

This function is called from precmd, but also from

  if [[ -o interactive && -n $TTY ]] then
    typeset -g _trapchld_called=1
