Battery charge not changing

Hi, I just bought a HP BC523NS and installed Arch on it

I'm trying to see how long the battery last, but I have a problem. Battery charge is not changing.

I unplugged the wall cable when battery was at 98%, I've been watching a move for an hour or so on it, and battery is still at 98%

This is upower --dump

Re: Battery charge not changing

This is probably because newer Laptops usually don't charge the battery always to 100%. I experience the same on my X1Yoga
