Well, it does charge, it's just very slow :-) If you can get into
u-boot, you could also manually increase the charge current
(neo1973 charger auto).

But, unfortunately, none of this will help you if the phone is busy
emptying its battery, due to that bug in old u-boot :-(

By the way, if trying any other battery, please make sure the
polarity is correct. I found a nice Motorola battery that almost
fits into the Neo, but that has + and - reversed.
