Later as the battery was cycled you'd re-evaluate that total estimated capacity and replace it with measured capacity based on the method espoused above.
No wonder these devices are running short of power -- if they have to do the above then 90% of their power usage is calculating battery capacity left. [Just joking -- but still...].
