Maybe it would be a better idea to just give the raw voltage of the battery.
The percentage does not give a good indication of the actual time left as this
is dependent on so many factors. I used to have a cellfone (ahem, Sagem) that
would give the actual voltage, and that was great. I now have a Motorola and it
says "40%" for days and then all of a sudden it conks out on me "LoBatt".
