[SOLVED] Battery charge time remaining calculation

I'm getting crazy battery charge time remaining calculations, in the order of 20 to 55 hours. I need a clue of where to start looking. Is this a hardware or software function?

The system in question is a Dell Inspiron 6400 running Linux Mate Rafaela
