It's a problem of both hal and the way E gadget calculates the
percentages. HAL reports three batteries, only one of which is real
power_supply device, other being APM emulated battery and the third is
external usb supply. It's believed that hal is wrong and shouldn't
report those extra batteries. OTOH if E gadget didn't average
percentages and took capacities into account those extra devices
wouldn't affect readings because both usb and apm lack maximum
capacity attribute and therefore should be ignored, IMHO.
