I already have one of the little clips broken (bottom ones)... I will
have to find a solution for when the second breaks...

About battery, not only 100mA is not enough to boot, but even with 1A
charger, it was stated that GSM module may require peak power up to
about 2A, so battery cannot really be always out.

About battery life, maybe the charge management code might also be
tuned to be even more clever... (for example, a mode were battery life
comes before charge speed).
It should be possible to easily force slow charge even if wall charger
is plugged in (1A is quite a lot for a battery).
And maybe could use something like "pulse charging"... (I do not know
what are -if any- the clever ways of charging this kind of battery)
