Public bug report changed:

It is not. The battery info can be requested over I2C (on the EC which
_is_ listed correctly in the ACPI table). There just isn't a Linux
driver for batteries like that yet.

Windows _does_ have this driver ('Microsoft Smart Battery Driver'),
which is probably the reason why ACER disabled the ACPI Battery stuff in
the DSDT (because everyone runs Windows).
