Ok, so I'm not fully understanding how to recalibrate my batter. I followed How to calibrate the laptop battery on 12.04 and so I ran the following:

xxx:~ $ power-calibrate -R -r 120 -d 5 -s 21 -n 0 -p

For 1 CPU (of a 4 CPU system):
  Power (Watts) = (% CPU load * 1.796812e-01) + -0.654258
  1% CPU load is about 179.68 mW
  Coefficient of determination R^2 = 0.644934 (weak)

  Energy (Watt-seconds) = (bogo op * 9.092169e-09) + 0.353925
  1 bogo op is about 9.09 nWs
  Coefficient of determination R^2 = 0.962223 (very strong)

But now nothing has happened. My battery estimates are still completely wrong. What do I do with the power-calibrate information once I have it? or is it supposed to do everything on its own?

Note that I'm running Ubuntu 18.04.

  • Would really like to know wtf that one answer was thinking, I found it and then your question. It seems nobody has an answer to how to recalibrate a battery in Ubuntu. – Tom Mercer Sep 28 at 21:53
