Did anyone got the battery charger to work properly? I'm using a Li-ion battery but the charger stops after about 3 hours. The battery isn't even nearly full at that point.Worst, the charger (lab power supply) gets disconnected so after charging the battery is simply drained until its empty.

To put it politely: I have a feeling that the mc13892 battery charger software (pmic_battery.c) is very far from complete.
