I've done some short recharge cycles, long recharge cycles, and running
with USB connected. So far it is looking good.
I'll make a load for you to test tonight (hopefully) and attach it to
the patch entry on sourceforge. The test load will create a file
"powermgmt.csv" in the root directory that will contain battery recharge
variables at one minute intervals (which spins up the disk. oh well).
It will be interesting to see how it handles your lower current
recharge... I expect it will handle it without difficulty, it will just
have a higher "trickle_sec" value (percentage "on" time).
