Bug Description

Battery charge is completely wrong displayed.

I'm using Linux Mint 8 Helena (and loving it) in a HP Pavilion dv5040us.

Discharging: It starts with 100%, falls in seconds to 99.0% and after a 1:30h falls directly to 5% and then 0%.
Charging: It starts with 3%, after 20min 4%, and then after a long time jumps to 100%.

"inxi -f" output:
