Comments from upstream kernel developer:

<mjg59> Yeah, upower isn't being terribly helpful there
 Mind you, nor is the kernel
<mjg59> There's no type distinction between batteries that are powering the system and batteries that are powering the peripheral
 You need to look at the path for that
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2012-04-16 13:47:15 EDT
(you == upower, in this context)
Comment 3 Ilkka Tengvall 2012-10-22 06:04:10 EDT
It seems there are several tickets open related to the same issue. At least:

812625, 830046, 845770, 806295, 863524

Can you please attach the lsinput output, there are some devices that do not report the correct info about how to grab the information, resulting in the error you get, in those cases I need to add a quirk to the kernel, I just need to make sure you are having the same case..

This message is a reminder that Fedora 16 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 16. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '16'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 16's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 16 is end of life. If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on 
"Clone This Bug" and open it against that version of Fedora.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 6 Fedora End Of Life 2013-02-13 09:43:15 EST
Fedora 16 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-02-12. Fedora 16 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
