ACK.

OK. Should I get the charge current from a DT property then?

Like "x-powers,charge-current = <300000>;"
It's close to what has been done in bq24257_charger for example.

Hum.. There are also POWER_SUPPLY_TECHNOLOGY_LION,
POWER_SUPPLY_TECHNOLOGY_LiFe and POWER_SUPPLY_TECHNOLOGY_LiMn which are
all Lithium-based batteries. From the datasheet, it can take a "single
cell Li-battery (Li-Ion/Polymer)". So I guess it's either
POWER_SUPPLY_TECHNOLOGY_LION or POWER_SUPPLY_TECHNOLOGY_LIPO.

ACK, I'll look into that.
