I agree, but I wanted to respect previous behaviour.

I can think of two possibilities right now, first one is to print
device name before sensor's description like:

[acpibat0] charge: 4.500Ah (100%)
[acpibat1] charge: 4.000Ah (100%)

or another one is to print device name before all sensors, like:

  charge: 4.500Ah (100%)
  state:  NORMAL
  charge: 0.240Ah (3.2%)
  state:  CRITICAL

I don't have any preference... if we agree that one of them should
be used I'll adapt the code.
