Set the battery level at which Ubuntu gives the "Battery Low" Warning

Do you think that the battery percentage/level at which Ubuntu gives the "Battery Low" warning is too high or too low?
This is a simple hack to change it to your desired level.
Open the terminal in Ubuntu (CTRL+ALT+T by default) and run the following commands. Replace the number '20' in each command with the percentage you desire.

To set the Battery Low Warning
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power percentage-low 20

To set the Battery Critically Low Warning
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power percentage-critical 20

To set the Battery Critically Low Action
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power percentage-action 20
(This sets the battery level to trigger the battery critically low action. e.g: hibernate the machine)

The execution of the following command is a must to set any of the above commands to effect. So don't forget to run it as the last step of this little hack.

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power use-time-for-policy false

Bonus Stuff - Displaying remaining battery level as a percentage

But if you like to display the remaining battery level as a percentage, the following link contains an interesting workaround.
