From the blog post:
"DocScrutinizer-with sleep=4 you either get 140h, or problems on recamping 
when out in the cold."

In other words if you set deep_sleep=always you will either see the full 
battery life, or you will get recamping, which will reduce battery life. Fixed 
devices see more battery life after the fix than before because they suffered 
from recamping before the fix.
