On my Samsung Series 5 ultrabook the battery isn't giving me the right percent.

When it is plugged in the battery indicator does not move, it stays the same. Any other panel apps that could display the battery more accurately?

Any help guys? Running 12.10

Questions on Ask Ubuntu are expected to relate to Ubuntu within the scope defined by the community. Consider editing the question or leaving comments for improvement if you believe the question can be reworded to fit within the scope. Read more about reopening questions here. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

It is better to post separate questions instead of combining your questions into one. That way, it helps the people answering your question and also others hunting for at least one of your questions. Thanks! –  user25656 Jan 15 '13 at 17:47
Are you running a bluetooth mouse? A second battery indicator was added for the mouse, so you may be seeing the mouse battery. It does seem to interfere with the mouse movement (bug 1098959) when it gets priority and displays the time remaining. –  ubfan1 Jan 15 '13 at 18:26
Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Please post the output of upower -d run from a terminal. Edit your question with this and possible other information. Thanks. –  gertvdijk Jan 15 '13 at 18:26
Does the output of upower reflect what you see in the applet? And does this show the correct information? –  gertvdijk Jan 15 '13 at 19:24
This question should instead be filed as a bug report, and as such is off-topic, thanks! Instructions on filing a bug report are here. –  Flimm Jan 16 '13 at 14:18
