The battery icon on the panel only changes when I restart or log-out then log back in. For example, my battery is low at 15%, however, the icon indicates its at 79%, which was the percentage when I first booted into the OS.

This is a known bug, and is being tracked and worked on: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/indicator-power/+bug/1315434
Seems to be as a driver issue. It seems you are using a laptop, and in that case updates drivers should be available for your laptop from the manufacturer's website. Try installing that
Me too had the same issue, Power Indicator didn't update once its booted. Found answer in G+. And it works fine for me. Source here.
Downgrade upower to get it working again.
sudo apt-get install upower=0.9.23-2ubuntu1
After downgrade, Do this to prevent the package being automatically upgraded.
sudo apt-mark hold upower
