I agree, the battery package is quite nice.

Though if you are just looking for fast-charge control for when using
dumb chargers, the basics have already been added to the Battery
module for shr-settings.  It's in the git repo [1], and potentially
buggy, but I was running it fine with my car charger all weekend on a
road trip.  Just replace the existing file in
/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/shr_settings_modules/ and restart

Beware: it may upset your cat, not work, or attract polar bears so use
with understanding, and backup your original before overwriting
