As your battery FRU number is mentioned in the firmware update list, so you battery model is not effected with this issue.
You can perform the calibration process to increase the battery backup and also update the BIOS.

Please charge your battery complete then use and discharge completely.
Do this process for at least 3 times and check the difference.

Perform gauge reset may help. Give it a try too. It will do the same like tanujhanda suggested above as well: charge - discharge - recharge.
Note: make sure AC adapter plug in when perfoming gauge reset.
How to perform the reset? Go to Power Manager > Battery tab > Battery Maintenance.
