I meant the plugins show a charging level of 99% if fully loaded 
although I'm working on battery mode until I use the given command to 
see the real chargment.
After using it both plugins update their percentage once.
It is also updated if I plug in/out the cable.

The 27 hours are shown by the battery-plugin. How can I see the time 
using power-manager?
