q2e32 can help you out.  In q2e32 I've pulled in some of my batman.fth 

As James mentions the EC won't try to charge if it thinks the battery is 
full because the battery full flag is set. I've added some commands that 
let you reset that flag.

ok batman-start
ok bg-clr-full-flag
ok ec-reboot

The EC should then charge your battery.
