Incorrect battery life reading RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have made the move from Windows 7 to Windows 8 but am concerned by the fact that windows is incorrectly displaying battery life.

    At first I thought this was a case of me not recharging my battery but I have subsiquently seen my battery go from reporting 35% charge, just after a full charge, to 85%, about 30 minutes later.  A further test saw my battery report 97% after starting, which I would estimate to be correct, to 6% 3 minutes later, then 95% 1 minute later.

    Am I the only one that sees this behaviour?

    It is an Acer Aspire 5560 Laptop.

  • Hi,

    Please update BIOS and chipset driver to see how it works. As the issue is also related to hardware, it is also recommended that you contact Acer Support for help:
