I have a Dell Inspiron N5010 and my old battery got old and could only hold maybe 30minutes worth of power at a time, so I got this:
And I popped it in, no problem, I made sure it was compatible and everything.
acpi -V is showing
Battery 0: Charging, 100%, until charged Battery 0: design capacity 6600 mAh, last full capacity 6158 mAh = 93% Adapter 0: on-line Thermal 0: ok, 37.5 degrees C Thermal 0: trip point 0 switches to mode critical at temperature 87.0 degrees C Cooling 0: Processor 0 of 10 Cooling 1: Processor 0 of 10 Cooling 2: Processor 0 of 10 Cooling 3: Processor 0 of 10
there seems to be a blank in front of "until charged" and it's never been 100%? or... 93% was the last known highest?
and the gui Unity battery readout is incredibly shakey and showing like (1:11) to charge at the same time of this readout...
My old battery was 6 cell and this one is 9 cell...
Is there something I have to do in BIOS or in Ubuntu to solve this?
I left it alone and closed the lid to let it fully charge and after it unplugged and re-plugged I still got the same acpi -V...
Would installing TLP or Jupiter or whichever help?
