It is already an average over an average. ;) And the (displayed)
battery level is already allowed only to go up one percent value per
minute. (read the CHARGING_ALGORITHM if you want to know more)

Hm. Could it be possible that the voltage of the LiIon battery of the
FM goes much more up and down than a NiMh battery?

Bye, Uwe.
