 Replying to [comment:6 garysu]:

 > This tool is battimes,this tool to get the system information, very
 similar with olpc-pwr-log.

 Yes.  It is very similar. However it does not report enough information to
 diagnose the problem correctly.  battimes does not record the ACR
 register.  There is a field that is marked as mAh but from looking at the
 numbers reported it appears to be the battery current and not the ACR.

 The formatting of your log file is is 2 lines per entry.  There is a
 linefeed after the date.  This makes it much harder to process the file
 and determine the Wh of the battery.

 Without the ACR register I cannot easily determine what the actual
 capacity of the battery you tested was.

 Please use olpc-pwr-log instead of battimes which reports all the
 necessary information I need in a format that is easy for me to process.
