Yes, that’s true at least the percentages still work. I have a Ibm X21, it shows both the percentage and the time remaining, but strangely once it hits zero it just keeps on going, and then will just turn off, how convenient. I've taken to using my stopwatch on my watch to time it. It runs for 2 hours and then suddenly dies. I've tried everything that IBM has said to try to fix it, and personally I think that the battery is wacky. Anyways be thankful that you have SOME indication of what’s going on, I wish I did with the X21.
Edit: I have used aftermarket programs too, and they don't work.
