Bug Description


Using rc-proposed r320 on arale (mx4)

- I went sleeping yesterday night, battery was like 30% (usualy enought to spend night)
- I wake up with the phone switched of due to low battery
- I plug the phone: power boot says 11%
- I boot ubuntu : it says 11%
- it charges up to 16% for 2 hours
- I switch off the phone: power boot says 53% (I mean, without waiting hours, just in the second)
- I switch on ubuntu, it display 53% too

Yesterday, same issue happened, I think with 53% too:

- it switched off while I was not supose to have empty battery,
- I plug, power boot says 53%,
- boot ubuntu, displays 53%

also getting this with rc-proposed/bq-aquaris.en; also, sometimes it won't even boot for 10-15 minutes even if it's plugged in and says the battery is at some non-zero percentage (even saw this with 50%-ish charge)
