Direct comparison widget to kinfocenter

Battery widget does not show any active battery, even though (for example) kinfocenter knows about them.

Toshiba Z20t-C detachable tablet

It seems like battery widget fetches battery status too early and does not update it anymore. As soon as i undock keyboard and dock it back, it gets informations about keyboard battery, but tablet battery remains undetected.

Feel free to contact me for more logs (i have no idea what logs may be necessary).

This did not happen on earlier versions of Plasma desktop, but i cant really confirm at which version exactly this thing started. From checking package cache it seems like i had 5.22.5 installed before upgrade, but i can't confirm this for sure.

So you have two batteries, but it shows zero, huh.
