           Summary: "Smart Battery" in Acer Aspire 1684WLMi not found
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: linux
        AssignedTo: ben.collins at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: martijn at foodfight.org
         QAContact: kernel-bugs at lists.ubuntu.com

My laptop has a "Smart Battery" which is not reported through ACPI. The AC
adapter status is also not available through ACPI.

There used to be some userspace tools to read this status (but that was during
2.2/2.4 kernel time). There's also a custom DSDT, but that's too scary to do out
of the box I guess.

The battery _is_ listed in dmidecode output
(http://bugzilla.ubuntu.com/attachment.cgi?id=3391), though not with all the
details I want (say, current charge, AC adapter status).

The Smart Battery standard is open, and should be addressable through the SMBus
