It's supposed to be a 1200mAH battery, so 1200/5 is 240mA, to get a 5
hour lifetime, right?

What is your method of measuring the current?  I was thinking of
cutting a strip of thin, double-sided PC board material and sticking
it between one battery contact and the corresponding phone contact,
then connect a current meter between the two planes of that strip.
