Hmm. Looks like there is no battery current/voltage properties then?
This is different from IBUS (input current), as IBUS = charging
current + system load. Documentation/power/power_supply_class.rst is
missing descriptions for the properties you mention.

There are two entries for /sys/class/power_supply/<supply_name>/current_avg
in the file, the other one mentions IBAT instead. "voltage_now" has the
same problem. There seems to be a split-personality disorder present in
the kernel ABI. ;-)
