The focus is on maximizing efficiency by avoiding moving charge into the main battery where possible. I'm open to discussion, and especially feedback and data.

Megi is integrating this functionality into the kernel (where it honestly belongs IMHO). As such my project is deprecated.

Your contribution to the PinePhone project is much appreciated! Smile 

Though personally I've had no luck getting the Keyboard case working on the PPP, although it works fine on my original PP, I've tried the suggested trick of pushing the pins on the case slightly close to the pogo pins on the phone, but that has made no difference, I cant use either the keyboard functionality or the battery charging functionality.

I'm sorry to hear that, because with the kb case the PPP is a truly amazing device. I also had a lot of problems initially that turned out to be defective pogo pins, after swapping them with my PP pogo pins everything worked beautifully.

Tried that approach that you suggested and the pogo pin swap makes no difference, the keyboard still doesn't work on the PPP.
