Perhaps this is a naive question, as I'm still pretty ignorant of both
the code and the hardware. But given that the charger knows when to
stop, couldn't you scale that 100% figure based on whatever metric the
charger uses? So that the number when unplugged is always >= the number
it shows when charging is underway?
