i3wm xenial-i3 introduction -- mate terminal & battery monitor
So, I did some configuration to fix battery indicator issue.

First of all install i3blocks via apt-get and config i3 file to use i3blocks as main bar. 
After this, open:
pine64@pinebook:~$ vim ./.config/i3/i3blocks.conf

And edit battery section to this one:
command=tail "/sys/class/power_supply/battery/capacity"

For sound you can do the same:

command=/usr/share/i3blocks/volume 5 pulse

For anyone, I will strongly recommend to spend few time for videos in the start of the tread - they are easy and very helpful for i3 noobs like i'm.

I have not fix an issue with closed lid yet and still can't find a terminal command to edit brightness value, if someone know it, please share it
