I'm desperate, because I don't know how to solve this problem. We have brand new UPS R1500 g3.
UPS works normally, everything is "green". But when I go to to HP Power Protector, there is a status of battery capacity always on 82%. We have replaced 2 UPS till now, but every time status of battery capacity is on 82%.
Firmware version is the latest : 1.08
DIP switches are positioned correctly.
I don't know what to do. Can you give me some advice?
Please see attached picture.

Charge the batteries for at least 24 hours before supplying backup power to
devices. The batteries charge to:
- 90% of their capacity within 4 hours
- 100% of their capacity within 24 hours
Hope this helps!

Thank you for your quick response.
Yes I did charge enough. UPS has been charging for about 14 days. And it is still on 82 %.
I though that something was wrong with UPS generally, so we ordered completelly new one, under warranty.
With new UPS situation is the same.
I took UPS to another location, pluged it in to a different "electricity"- same situation.

I am having same issue.
Battery has been stuck at between 80%-81% on utility power charging for more then a month.
In addition it has begun alarming indicating a battery test failure.
Any suggestions? or solutions?

We're having the same issue.
Just swapped for another identical UPS (under warranty) - UPS battery capacity has been around 86% mark since installation yesterday.
The older UPS was at 82%.
