These current discharge and voltage drop measurements will be calculated the same regardless of operating system, however the estimate of remaining time will be the result of the algorithm used, and each operating system will have it's own algorithm.
Even a dipstick in a car tank only works if you are exactly equal with 'road, wind load and foot-pedal pressures'.

US$5.00 per year so 5 years would be around Aus$30.00
Click the CTH link that Smurfy put on his reply to you for all the gory details

No, this:

is a Big Tick.

And AU$ is worth more than US$ at the moment so 5 years would probably be about AU$24.

Unfortunately in Australia all the dipsticks are down in Canberra, and none of them work, except for themselves.

Since when did an ACT "dipstick" work for anything. I thought they could only tell other people what to do.

My dad taught me:- After you leave school. - Learn something that you enjoy doing, then do it. - If you can't do it, teach it. - If you can't even teach it. Join the public service.

Sorry about that folk's. You hit my hot-spot then.

I went through 'Infants' 'Junior' and 'High-school. With never being given homework.
We were about 44 children and 1 teacher in a classroom.
We were taught, instructed and helped all day by the teacher.

I only received homework after I finished school and attended, first 'Technical College' and then University.
We only received homework then, because, we were lectured to by 'Lecturers'.
Who told us what to get and where to find the information we needed to teach ourselves.
