Obvious next question: when the battery icon changes to this almost-empty state, does the HP-42S-style low battery annunciator turn on as well? Enquiring minds want to know. :D
I'm pretty sure the answer to that is "no" because the DM42 has a battery indicator whereas the HP-42S doesn't!
Fair enough!
But what about flag 49?

Yup. That gets set, so programs can indeed tell if the battery is low.
Not SwissMicros staff, just an enthusiast.

Is there anything like a low-battery warning before?
I'm told there's a specific battery icon between it showing as empty and when the DM42 stops working but I have yet to see it. The battery even in my beta DM42 isn't that flat yet.
Obvious next questions: at which voltage the battery icon changes to this almost-empty state? How much calculating time will be left? Enquiring minds want to know (thanks, Thomas!). :D
Hate to quote myself but these two questions are open still...
