Happened to be looking more closely than usual at my dmesg looking for something
else, and spotted this:

[ 6.079043] power_supply BAT0: 11 dynamic props
[ 6.079045] power_supply BAT0: prop STATUS=Full
[ 6.079047] power_supply BAT0: prop PRESENT=1
[ 6.079049] power_supply BAT0: prop TECHNOLOGY=Li-ion
[ 6.079052] power_supply BAT0: prop VOLTAGE_MIN_DESIGN=11100000
[ 6.079054] power_supply BAT0: prop VOLTAGE_NOW=11793000
[ 6.079056] power_supply BAT0: prop CURRENT_NOW=1000
[ 6.079058] power_supply BAT0: prop CHARGE_FULL_DESIGN=7800000
[ 6.079061] power_supply BAT0: prop CHARGE_FULL=3110000
[ 6.079063] power_supply BAT0: prop CHARGE_NOW=7800000
[ 6.079065] power_supply BAT0: prop TIME_TO_FULL_AVG=DELL FF2316
[ 6.079067] power_supply BAT0: prop MODEL_NAME=Sanyo
[ 6.079301] ACPI: SSDT 7FE82138, 0244 (r1 PmRef Cpu0Ist 3000 INTL 20050624)
[ 6.079488] ACPI: SSDT 7FE81EED, 01C6 (r1 PmRef Cpu0Cst 3001 INTL 20050624)
What's with that TIME_TO_FULL_AVG value? Is the battery on crack, or my BIOS,
or the driver? I expected time units, not a Dell part number ;) (Yes, I know
CHARGE_FULL is low, the battery is pretty beat, and Latitudes seem to always
report CHARGE_NOW as "design full" when running off the AC power brick)

(For the record, dmidecode says:

Handle 0x1600, DMI type 22, 26 bytes
Portable Battery
Location: Sys. Battery Bay
Manufacturer: Sanyo

Design Capacity: 78000 mWh

SBDS Version: 1.0
Maximum Error: 0%
SBDS Serial Number: 0355
SBDS Manufacture Date: 2006-10-26
SBDS Chemistry: LION
OEM-specific Information: 0x00000001
So it even managed to lose the trailing 'A'.. ;)
