View Full Version : [ubuntu] Battery Capacity Question -Asus EeePC

September 20th, 2008, 07:29 PM
Just a quick question, no real importance to it. I just installed Ubuntu on an Asus EeePc, much thanks to the detailed instructions I found on this site. Most is well, a few glitches and bugs I need to work through, but my wife is happy with it. One question though, as I'm a desktop user not a laptop user, the battery when fully charged, shows in the details screen at 100% charge, 2 1/2 hours or so life time, but in the middle it shows the battery capacity as being only 2%. I'm wondering if this is referring to my battery only running at 2% capacity or if this is just a comparison to the average laptop battery. This is a very small 7" Asus laptop, and the battery life was never great. My wife usually keeps this plugged in anyway, but I'm just wondering what the capacity percentage is referring to, especially because the charge percentage is 100. Thanks

I cannot help you but there is a Asus EEE PC site for Ubuntu. Just a WAG, but I suspect that is where you should be looking.
