The battery level should be ok, because it is allowed to go 3% down per
minute in usb mode instead of 1% in normal mode.
But the battery_time is calculated out of a constant power consumption
(160 mA ?).
Should I change it so it considers another power consumption when in usb
mode? What value (in mA) should I take? Assuming a 3h running time in
usb mode, it maybe consumes 600 mA?

Fine! That was the idea. :-)
