Battery on ExpressKeys Remote

Hi

For some time now, and I posted two other posts about it without reply, I have had this strange situation with my ExpressKeys remote.
So when it happened today I thought I would take screenshots to show the error, and hope for a fix.

Basically the remote becomes strangle random in it's actions, when I assume it is running out of power. I say assume, as you can see from some of the screenshots of the battery indicator that it says 87%.
Now, what occurs, is I can be painting, like today, and suddenly, regardless of having fingers on the remote or not, the settings screen appears. But not only that a warning saying the devise is short on battery and also the canvas resize screen. It has happened every time I have had to recharge.
I can dig getting the warning modal, but the two other panels, why does this happen?
Also, why does the battery indicator only show 100% and 87% regardless of it's state?
Please fix this, the Mac OS bluetooth battery indicator is perfect and a good example on how it should be.

What happens first; several windows open - settings, battery warning modal and Canvas resize window.

Windows after Settings screen has been dismissed.

Excuse me, is the problem about 87% of the batteries solved now? I also encountered the same problem, my operating system was windows 10. It also bothers me. I want to know if it is a hardware problem? Is it a driver problem? Anyone who knows, please tell me, thank you.

Hi,
This bug seemed to happen very rarely and it was hard to reproduce. In later driver versions this was not seen any longer. Can you please confirm if you still have this and which Wacom Driver version and Operating System you are using?

I would say no! Image This image is from my menu bar this morning. About 20 minutes before this moment the system notified my that the battery is running low.

Still an issue.

And what is the Wacom Driver and OS version you are using?

Can you update the driver and check if the issue persists? Keep in mind: https://www.wacom.com/support?guideId=015-916

OK

Updated drivers. This has created a real slow start up on Cintiq after screensaver or sleep kicks in.
Also very slow/sluggish response on pen in Photoshop.

But, main issue...
It hasn't resolved the battery indicator issue. See here, which just happened.
