    FWIW, SBS only mentions mAh and mWh. AFAIK, all other (meaningful) units
    should be able to be converted to either Ah or Wh, assuming enough precision
    on the math. I never heard of any other way to fuel-gauge batteries than
    these two main modes (current-based or capacity-based), but I don't work on
    the battery field.

    That said, you may need to use uWh and uAh instead of mAh and mWh, though.
