[Bug 403303] Re: power manager reports 1% battery even though it is full on Asus Eee PC netbook


See #53 above. I have been updating my eeepc 900 with each new kubuntu
release and have not seen this problem since.

The metering is not very accurate and drops with 20% starting from 100%
each 15 minutes or so. Yeah, the battery is nearing it's end-of-life.

  power manager reports 1% battery even though it is full on Asus Eee PC

Status in DeviceKit based power management D-Bus backend:
Status in “devicekit-power” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

  after logging in, I see a dialog box that says my battery may be
  broken and that it only has 1% charge, yet it's been plugged in for a
  long time, and the battery meter shows that it's full.  Will post
  screenshot.  The netbook I'm running this on is an Eee900, and this is
  on the A3 release of karmic UNR.
