 Nope, GTA02 battery has a nice monitoring chip we talk to in order to find
 out that stuff, GTA01 doesn't have anything like that.  You can monitor
 voltage on the battery from another /sys node (although that monitoring is
 meant to be shaky at the moment), but that is quite hard to reliably
 relate to time until empty or time until full.  So it's just something you
 can have with the shipping GTA02 battery.

 Going to close as "invalid", since it is expected behaviour.
