I had some luck just googling AT commands. They are somehow

So this would be "text mode": AT+CMGF=1. And I'd actually expect
auto-ack to be the default on ttyUSB4, but in any case this is the
command that controls it is: AT+CNMI=1,2,2,1,0.

So... 57h would be very nice, and even 25h is cool. IIRC original
motorola firmware does something like 100hours, and cyanogenmod is
closer to 24h...

Note that there's something in the sysfs that allows "precise"
measurements. Aha, it is "charge_counter" on droid4.

(I even have some software to do the monitoring and display the
graphs. unicsy_demo/monitor/batmond).
