I don't have a lemote yeeloong, but for my notebook I use
the following command to check the battery status:

cat /sys/class/power_supply/BAT0/charge_now

If you have another directory structure, try to check the sys 
directory for the charge_now file.

Try command line tools. They are much more stable then any of the GUI tools.
For example, I connect to the Internet by the command:

pppd call dsl

where "dsl" is the name of a small simple script. My system is gnewsense 2.3.

Good luck!
