Indicator for charging takes several minut

I have an issue with indicator for battery charging. It takes several minutes to change from icon of battery to icon of battery with lightning (the icon that is charging).
It’s not a blocking issue for usage, but I thing it could get fixed :slight_smile:

I believe this is due to recent changes targeting at improving battery health, but it seems to back off of charging until the battery has depleting a certain amount (around 5%) before charging again. If you use upower, you’ll see it’s on “Pending Charge” state and not actually charging, so the icon correctly reflects that. It’s not something to worry about. Less charge cycles overall means your battery should be healthier for longer.
