Perc 5i problem with battery mode

This is nothing to be concerned about. The battery on the PERC 5 controllers will periodically learn their charge level. The reason that we flag this as non-critical state is that you don't have the full battery power during a learn cycle. However, the learn cycle identifies battery problems earlier and allows the batteries possible charge level to remain higher.
