Librem 14 Battery Percentage Inaccurate

My relatively new Librem 14 seems to die around 20% of battery left with no warning. I have to go get my power and then boot it up from scratch. It would be nice if it would go to sleep and not just die so I don’t have to restart everything. Also, it would be good to show the battery percentage accurately.

Has anyone else experienced this?

This isn’t a battery problem, it is a problem with power draw while the laptop is on battery power. This should be addressed soon in an EC update. Keep an eye out here and/or the blog for when that is released!

Sweet! Any idea when that might be available?

It seems like its getting worse. I had it shut down today with 40% left on the battery. That wouldn’t be too bad, but it does a hard shut down and I have reload everything up that I was working on. Not cool. Any ETA on that new firmware?

This did not fully fix the problem for me. It seems to have made the laptop only crash at lower power levels (e.g. 20%) rather than higher levels such as 40%.
