Assuming this is the third log, this is because BAT1 is not marked as
“empty” but discharging, with a very low charge. I guess the laptop is
switching battery before BAT1 is empty to prevent power outage or
something like that.

There's not much xfpm can do there, since it picks the information from
upower, and I'm not too sure upower can do much either, it picks the
information from the kernel. I'm not sure if the real state is
”discharging” or ”nothing” and I'm not even sure the “nothing” state
(where the battery isn't charging, discharging or empty) even exists.
