Your DSDT has the following:

                        Name (BFB0, Package (0x04)

which is an object returned by the _BST ACPI method (which gives battery
status). According to the ACPI spec, the second of these members is the current
rate. There's nothing in your DSDT that ever writes anything to that offset, so
it stays at 0. The other members are populated by the _BST call, so return
correct information. I'm afraid that your system is working as designed, it's
just been badly designed.
