I noticed that, when running pr2 in simulation for a long time, the battery will go down eventually to 0. Does that matter when there's no battery, if so, how to charge it? Thanks

It tries to mimic power_monitor on the PR2, but has an additional subscription on ros topic /gazebo/plugged_in to change its own charge state (see here for more details).

yes, it worked, charging instantly to 100%... not sure what this field means in "pr2_gazebo_plugins/PlugCommand.msg": "float64 charge"
