In my Dell D600 LapTop, I've also 2 batteries (the extra one is in the media
bay), and I use the xfce-genmon-plugin to monitor the 2 batteries.

For more infos, see the screenshot in:
http://goodies.xfce.org/projects/panel-plugins/xfce4-genmon-plugin

The source archive includes an "example" script to monitor 2 batteries, if you
know a bit of shell scripting, you can easily fit it to your needs.
(Personnaly, I use "zenity" to display an alert box when the batteries reach a
very low level.)

But it's a bit more complicated than just using a dedicated plugin...
