> While investigating the Battery Plugin, I've discovered quite a few issues with it that
tells me that this will never actually work:
> 1. This listens to BATTERY_CHANGED.  We can never listen to this Broadcast because the
battery ALWAYS changes and this will drain the battery.  Android explicitly prevents this
event from being listened to in the manifest.
> 2. We don't set up a BroadcastReceiver for BATTERY_LOW, BATTERY_CHARGED
> 3. We have no idea whether the phone is plugged into an AC Adapter or a Computer, this
is important information to have.
> I think that it's probably a good idea for this plugin to be completely re-written.
