I am using

Ubuntu 11.4 

I have just inserted a new battery. However, there is no settings that show the capacity current charge time, etc.

When I click the battery icon. All I get is the current percentage.

Is there anything that will give me more details about my battery?

Many thanks for any suggestions,

Left click over battery icon -> click over "Laptop Battery X:XX left" text

In "Power statistics" you have the details you´re looking for. In "History" tab you can find charge and discharge profile graphics
