I'm afraid that I can not be of much help.
Let me repeat the problems as I see them, (pretty much as originally stated)
- The battery loses too much charge (~12% in 24h) when in an XO but not when out.
- The battery has a bit decrease capacity (2.75Ah was the max I ever recorded last month)
- The battery miss-communicates its state to the kernel/OS (BTW usually I confirm erratic Sugar readings by looking directly at /sys/class/power_supply/olpc-battery/)
After a month of e-mails we hopefully agree in 2 out of the 3 symptoms and have no causes/solutions yet.
As I said before, the problem needs an engineer if it is to be investigated any further, and I'm not.
You are welcome to the battery.
