Today I've done some tests charging my FR from the Minty Boost:

- the two AA batteries are: 2700mAh NiMH 1.2V from Varta, they have been
  fully charged and directly pulled out of the Varta charger;

- I've been waiting until battery.py showed the FR with 10% of left

- plugged in the Minty Boost and switched it to 500mA mode; this is the
  position X in time in the small table below;

- I watched every 30 minutes the charging process; the FR was signed in
  into cellphone network, display mainly switched off and only
  'battery.py' was running; this gives

  X + 00min  -- 10% (time to full 4.5h)
  X + 30min  -- 24%
  X + 60min  -- 39%
  X + 90min  -- 53%
  X + 120min -- 62%

  then in stopped charging, maybe because the AA batteries have been
  to low; have no item to measure them :-(

Any comments;
