Definitely 3/1 on my AJBR20.

My suggestion:

  if globalsetting.blinkplug
    show battery as requested (graphic / numeric)
    if charging
      show blinking plug symbol
      show steady plug symbol if charger connected
    show steady plug symbol if charger connected
    if charging
      show animated battery
      show battery as requested (graphic / numeric)
