How can I determine if a remote node is on USB power or battery, using the CLI?

I’d like to be able to use a CLI call like –info to see all mesh nodes and be able to determine from that which nodes are on USB power vs internal battery. This allows me to identify if a solar charged battery has dropped to a level low enough that the USB power is no longer sufficient to power the device and the device has switched to its internal battery.

Looking at the –info response, it looks like there is no indicator of USB power, just a 100% power level.

hmm - alas, we don’t send that right now, but it would be easy to add. Can you put a bug in on the meshtastic-device project on github and someone will probably get to it in a few weeks?
