It *is* HAL confused about that. It see USB as different battery, with
capacity 0% all the time (no matter if it's connected or not). It also
used to see APM emulation as third battery - it displayed 33% then.
It's fixed in SHR, you can fix that by changing from HAL to Internal
in battery meter settings (and after changing - reboot)
