With 2 batteries remaining time calculates for one of them or not calculates at all

Description of problem:
I have Lenovo T420s laptop and 2 batteries - main and second installed in the UltraBay port. In ROSA Marathon 2012 everything worked fine - I could see remaining time and percent of charge for any battery, but in ROSA Desktop.Fresh 2012 I see nothing.
The most annoying fact of this, that I can't see when the charge of my batteries will become to critical, I see 100% of charge most of the time. But if I close the lid of my laptop and open it again, I see sometimes that the battery is discharged for some percent.
If I run "acpi: in konsole I can see the charge for each my battery.
I found simular bugs in the KDE bugzilla:
In the last bug, I see that this problem is fixed: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=301533#c21
But, it still present in KDE 4.9.4.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I forgot to say, that in GNOME version everything works fine. Even if it installed in VirtualBox.
I solved my problem by installing plasma-applet-battery-4.8.3-4-rosa.lts2012.0.x86_64 from ROSA Marathon 2012. Now I can see my both batteries. As a plus I can see remaining time (and do not see that annoying hint for applet which was introduced for the new version of applet).
I suggest to build plasma-applet-battery-4.8.X for the ROSA Desktop.Fresh 2012, so¸ users who have several batteries will have a quick workaround. Or maybe it will be better to use this version of applet by default?
Please check the problem for new release
