A simple project to display the problem.

SystemInformation.PowerStatus.BatteryLifePercent seems to return random results:
if the battery is full it returns 1.00 as it should, however if it is not it either returns a seemingly random value or the time remaining until battery is empty. The latter seems to happen more often as the battery level gets lower.
I've submitted a simple project to display the problem.
