Last modified: 2016-05-31 21:32:20 EDT
Description of problem:
When running a system with 2 batteries, ac adaptor disconnected, and one becomes empty, xfce4-power-manager shows charging icon on the empty battery, which is apparently wrong.

Run a system with 2 batteries connected, adaptor disconnected and discharge one battery to 0%.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Unplug adaptor from the computer

Totaly empty battery is reported by xfce4-power-manager as being charged -- adaptor is disconnected.
Report battery status as empty.
