I recently dual booted my Acer Espire E5-573G using Windows 10 and Ubuntu 18.04. Upon booting up I saw that there was no battery icon. When I did upower-dits shows this.


Found the fix, needed to update my BIOS to the lastest version.

  • The BIOS updates on the Acer site are only for Windows. Where did you get the BIOS update from? – bflemi3 Feb 23 at 18:11
  • @bflemi3 I was dual booting so I had Windows 10 on the machine as well.So I ran the BIOS updater on that. – gforgreg Feb 24 at 20:56
