For something managing battery levels, I think you want to stay with C++. This is a common language (relatively), available on almost all platforms. C# is a language that is Microsoft-specific, and requires the use of a fairly heavy weight and specific CLR, which you wouldn't be able to run at or near BIOS level for example. C++ code will be able to run multi-platform and in low-level environments.

You want to stick with C++.

Good luck!
