Cinnamon Power Management Applet not displaying correct battery level

I'm having an issue with cinnamon's applet for power management. Even though it correctly displays the percentage, the icon it uses does not display the accurate battery level. I have tried multiple icon packs and the problem is the same. I installed artix using the cinnamon ISO provided on the website and I am using the runit version. Below is a screenshot of the icon as well as the output to upower -d:

And more you can find in Internet, but no really solution.... Seems as obviously cinnamon bug
Sorry, no idea 😢😢
You can try another  DE, they should works normally on your laptop...
Or use another battery applet
