Depending on which XBee module and firmware you are working with, you could use an ADC line or the %V command.

Can you give me some example, please?
Your external processor would do the following:

+++
ok
AT%V <CR>
Value sent out
ATCN <CR>
ok
Any codes on github ?
Which XBee product are you working with?
Xstics, Wall router, Connect port x etc...
Not all of the products you listed offer you an option to view the current draw. As far as I am aware, only the OEM module offer you that option and only the newer products such as the S2C or XBee 3.
For now i use this codes and they help me a lot with my devices. Can i find anything similar to help me with the energy consumption ?

I don't think you understand what I am saying. What I am referring to is that the hardware such as the X4, Wall Router and XStick do not offer an option to report its Energy consumption.
OK, Thank you
