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

No, it does not matter.

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"
