This icon seems to be useless at the moment. Something is broken with the battery-driver just take a look at the dmesg it's full of errors because of that. The only way I'm aware of for the moment to check how fulle your battery is, is:

cat /sys/devices/platform/bq2700-battery.0/power_supply/bat/capacity

which shows the percentage of how much it's loaded.
