Plus some other patches, yes.

Aha, I was looking in the wrong directory. Yes, these look useful.

Ok. I normally do once in 30 seconds.

Ok, more stuff on TODO list. I actually use python hacks, and not
libbattery now.

Is this one correct?


I believe you mentioned flash stops working at 3.3V. What is important
from my point of view is to shut the system down when the battery is
low. I believe that still needs to be implemented.

Is it appropriate to shutdown at POWER_SUPPLY_CAPACITY_LEVEL_CRITICAL?
But then libbattery will race with shutdown to save the thresholds...

I also have some hacks to allow configuration of the full
voltage. Charging to 4.35V is pretty agressive, and I believe baterry
will be damaged less if we only charge to 4.1V.

Best regards,
