SoundPeats earbuds are not showing any battery info in KDE. not in notification area, nor in the system info - energy.
They do show in Android.
For instance Logitech mouse is shown,
all updated.
any ideas how to force the info to show up?

Did you search in arch wiki and in KDE/earbuds manuals?

E.g. (just guessing):
https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Bluetooth_headset#Battery_level_reporting

I did, nothing specific

Thanks, I did that. system loads updated values.
no change.
No battery level mentioned in Battery nor in Bluetooth devices.

Is your bluetooth a BT/Wifi combo unit on your Intel 3165 chip?

If so, this could be part of your problem as this is an old Intel chip no longer receiving updates and support from Intel.

I assume your Android device which works correctly is not using the same onboard chip.

Yes, you are right, it is the 3165 chip.
Too bad they install it on the ryzen 3 board...
can updating the firmware help?

You can look on the Intel website for a newer firmware, but it is doubtful if you will find one.

there is an upgraded firmware inside the linux-firmware-iwlwifi-git from Aur. It causes system not to boot as it replaces linux-firmware and amd- ucode.
