 Replying to [comment:8 RafaelOrtiz]:
 > confirmed in one machine that got totally discharged, then when re-
 plugged to the DC adapter, it seems that the battery could not be
 recharged, watch-battery gets stalled at 0.00A of charging current.

 Thats a different bug.  Thats #9530 EC does not sense battery. Which I
 just closed cause it seems to be fixed in my tree.  Will be in then next
 firmware after q3a14.

 With this bug you can't even turn the XO on because the EC handles all the
 button presses. So no EC == no buttons == no startup.
