Doesnt the manual say that the battery should never show completely full?

I think the manual said it isn't unusual for the battery to never indicate full.

But is the battery realy full? Just like is it realy almost empty when there's only one bar?

I think the indicator only works within the batterys operating limits.

Does anybody know what those 4 smaller bars in the grey section with the + and - sign above the all green bars?
I have never seen them do anything.
What are they there for?

It indicates the polarity of the battery.
