It's very simple. At that day it showed me remaining 7%, can last 4
hours and 30 minutes around.
I tried to do something very heavy to see the estimated remaining
hours, it's still near 4 hours.
No matter how positive I towards my battery, it can's last more than
40 hours or more. (7% =~ 4 hours; 70% ~ 40 hours)
so I just removed the power manager and back to avoid suddenly shut down.
It's just personal experience, might be wrong. please take it carefully
