Some implementations of energy manager have advanced settings to set charge
thresholds. You may want to set these as low as possible (down to 40%).
That way it still works as a upc substitute.
For Li-ion accumulators, storage charge of about 40% is recommended. You
should, however, never let them discharge fully.
