Dell Battery Issues

Hey guys. I need assistance with a battery issue on my Dell Machines. The laptops always say that the battery is shite, however, the actual cells inside zee plastic are still functional, i.e., they will still charge and discharge when I connect them to my test equipment…

Any help with this would be appreciated!:bat:

I suspect a driver issue

Dat Me,

I usually check with upower --dump the battery status.

Thank you.
I will put this to work ASAP.

As always,


I’m unsure what to do with these results good sir!

I can pm them to you if you would like



It lists the battery status and you can use those results.
You can parse the value from percentage:
Mine shows 91% and discharging.
