Unless having very good knowledge on Lithium battery charging (I am not), I don't encourage backer to modify the parameter. However, if there is backer has such deep knowledge and interest to do so, that will be awesome. The current charging characteristic gearing toward tablet application which is this SoC original usage.

I'm interested in knowing also. Another SoC board I have which has a AXP209 seems to be have much better access to the SoC, as you can easily access its registers over the i2c, thus allowing you to configure the battery maximums and minimums, as well as configure things like the current limit on the USB sockets, etc. 

And since the AXP is connected to an i2c bus, why does't it register with either of the below commands? Is it hiding somewhere else?

Code:
sudo i2cdetect -y 0
sudo i2cdetect -y 1

I get how you are concerned with people misconfiguring things and blowing up a battery, but that doesn't prevent the info from being put out there very clearly one what NOT to do, and what IS safe to do. I like how the other boards wiki tells you which settings are safe to touch, and how to change them, and cautions on the others. 

And as far as default charge profiles, /sys/class/power_supply/battery/technology is certainly wrong, as /sys/class/power_supply/battery/voltage_min_design and  /sys/class/power_supply/battery/voltage_max_design are clearly set for lipo batteries (which is what pretty much everyone would be using, so that is good!), as life batteries are designed to be charged to 3.6v, not the 4.2 volts that lipo batteries are!!!
