http://ubuntuforums.org – I just bought a new 8800 mAh battery for my VAIO PCG-7N2L laptop, but it's not recognized by ubuntu and won't boot while the battery is actually attached. I had to replace it because the 4800mAh battery crapped out on me. acpi 1 returns Code: Battery 1: discharging, 100%, rate information unavailable. cat /proc/ACPI/battery/BAT0/info returns Code: present:                yes design capacity:        655350 mWh last full capacity:      655350 mWh battery technology:      non-rechargeable design voltage:          655350 mV design capacity warning: 1000 mWh design capacity low:    400 mWh capacity granularity 1:  100 mWh capacity granularity 2:  100 mWh model number: serial number: battery type:            LiOn OEM info:                Sony Corp. cat /proc/acpi/battery/BAT0/state returns Code: present:                yes capacity state:          ok charging state:          discharging present rate:            unknown remaining capacity:      655350 mWh present voltage:        unknown uname -a returns Code: Linux laptop 2.6.24-24-generic #1 SMP Fri Sep 18 16:49:39 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux (Hardware)
