Looking at the datasheet confirms that the bq27500 updates the current register
every second. The bq27000 updates it only every 5.12 seconds.
I think reducing the the cache time for bq27500 to 1 second would render the
cache mostly useless, but maybe it makes sense to bypass the cache for voltage
and current on the bq27500.
