Every u-boot I've tried has been able to charge a dead battery. It just takes 
like 6 hours before you can turn it on :) ... this is due to the hardware 
needing to be primed before allowing for proper charging. I don't know if this 
will ever change, software/firmware-wise.

I only run testing ... everything ... so I'd only point you to daily for u-

If you want to test ... run it flat then try and charge over night. Keep a 
battery handy if you can ;)
