Re: what to do when gnome power manager shows wrong battery capacity?



I'm back on my original question.

On HP Pavilion dv6426us GPM shows:
Current Charge: 50.5 Wh
Designed charge: 88.8 Wh

and /proc show this:

# cat /proc/acpi/battery/BAT0/info
present:                 yes
design capacity:         6000 mAh
last full capacity:      4032 mAh
battery technology:      rechargeable
design voltage:          14800 mV
design capacity warning: 207 mAh
design capacity low:     125 mAh
capacity granularity 1:  10 mAh
capacity granularity 2:  25 mAh
model number:            Primary
serial number:
battery type:            LION
OEM info:                Hewlett-Packard


But I pulled the battery out and on the back of the battery on the
label it says:
10.8V and 47Wh

that is 4350 mAh not 6000 mAh as /proc info says... and design voltage
is also wrong.
