I think this is the *greatest* fault of OM/SHR since the introduction of
2.6.28 kernel.
Please, community, try to solve this, to adapt the well known battery.py
to the current kernel. I think that after the release of OM 2009.1 and
the excellent work of Paroli team, the phone side is about to be completed.

But, we still have the problem of battery: I use FR as daily phone (or,
better girlfriend phone) since the first times. I don't worry much about
battery, I always have a Nokia BL-5C in my bag.

But, if we cannot have a quick solution for battery lasting, we should
try to make it chargeable all the times: how could we think to use
TangoGPS or Navit in the car for long trips with the current situation?

I'm not able to adapt battery.py myself, I've little experience with
python but don't know much how a kernel works.

This is a desperate appeal :D
