echo bq27000-battery.0 > /sys/bus/platform/drivers/bq27000-battery/unbind
allows me to check the value of:
echo bq27000-battery.0 > /sys/bus/platform/drivers/bq27000-battery/bind
restores the "smart" battery function.
I attach a graph of the resulting discharge rate of the fully charged
Nokia BL-6C battery.
- Even with the "dumb" battery configuration, the battery charging
animated icon continues after USB (power) disconnection - should that
- Using the methods above, both "bind" and "unbind" files exist in the
driver directory - shouldn't there be only one at any one time? If not,
don't the files only need to be created once instead of repeatedly each
time the scripts/aliases are run?
- The discharge rate attached for an inactive phone (with a blanked
screen) with a new, fully charged battery is not very good (~10 hours) -
I would need at least 24 hours with light usage to be able to use the
Neo as my regular phone. Is this battery performance typical?
- Should the phone be shut down after the "dumb" battery is fully charged?
